04 Initial Contact

The Initial Contact page is used to record details of staff interactions with clients. The amount of time spent with the client and doing after work are recorded. The needs of the individual (for example: Persons with Developmental Disabilities) and the outcomes of the contact (for example: application form assistance provided) are recorded. This information is used for reporting purposes.
