|Guide for use:|
Due to the considerable variation in the types of services provided in the community services sector, it is not possible at this stage to define in generic terms what will constitute the first service contact date.
For each separate service episode a separate 'Service event—first service contact date, DDMMYYYY' should be recorded.
This metadata item is used in calculation of measures of periods of support and duration of assistance.
