Step 1. Log into your CRM database (refer to Logging On for further information).
Step 2. Select Children from the top menu
Step 3. Select the Child record you wish to update.
Step 4. Scroll to the Foster/Respite Child Referral sub-panel
Step 5. Click Create on the Foster/Respite Referral sub-panel within the Child record
