Guide for use:Help on this term

The service identifier includes components that identify main service type, state/territory and a number for each service.

Each service included in the Children's Services NMDS collection should have a unique identifier at the national level. Allocation of the service identifier should be undertaken by the organisation responsible for the Children's Services NMDS collection.

All individual caregivers working for family day care/in-home care services are provided with the same service identifier as the service in which they work.
