The client cards were compiled c.1989 to c.1990 by the Client Liaison Officer to record details of casework relating to persons who lived in the Aboriginal Community of Doomadgee. It would appear that these cards relate to the administration of grants and family support issues on various child care matters. These cards may have been the product of cross-government meetings on various issues, mainly child care and housing, as part of the Community Services Development grants for Doomadgee. While these cards may have had related files regarding these issues, there are no file numbers indicated on the cards. It appears that client cards were created only for a short period and are no longer used.
Each card documents the following details: file number, client number, worker number, name, sex, date of birth, place of birth, marital status, address, occupation, home and work phone numbers, employer, employer's address, reason for contact (eg., financial problems) and remarks. On the back of the card more details are given regarding the social welfare issue involved, with card entries also including: date of contact, reason for contact, brief details (eg., discussed and arranged for budget counselling), worker number, and worker initials.
