The current referral processes can be very time consuming, involving a lot of duplication and forms. FACS workers need to know what referral services are available for CYPs and families in specific areas. But maintaining a list of all referral services for their area is unmanageable. There is a need to provide services that match the family needs as documented in the case plan.
Referral Management will simplify the referral process for caseworkers and service providers. This will mean that agencies are able to more easily manage their referrals and so clients will be better matched to a provider meaning they are more likely to achieve a successful outcome.
