CORC helps to ensure that individuals, teams and whole organisations are empowered to use evidence in their pursuit of more effective child-centred support, services and systems. Our work to support this includes:

  • Training practitioners, supervisors, service managers and commissioners
  • Working together with service providers to build capacity amongst their whole workforce to use evidence to improve support
  • Hosting national and regional knowledge-sharing events including conferences, seminars and round tables
  • Fostering an engaged and active community of practitioners who are experts in the realities of implementing outcome measures on the ground

CORC has over ten years’ experience bringing together theoretical knowledge on outcome measures and relating this to the insights and expertise developed by practitioners working with children and young people on the ground.

We currently have a range of training courses available on our Training and Events pages, which supports professionals from across the health, education and social care sectors to build their knowledge and expertise in using outcome measures and data to inform service improvement. In addition to these, a number of training videos have been developed for organisations to inform and support clinicians and others working with child mental health.

Throughout the year CORC and its partner organisations also host a number of events and workshops of interest to those working with children and young people’s mental health. These cover a range of topics, and in the past have included what we mean by a ‘good’ outcome, working with endings and how we should talk about recovery.

CORC members are invited to attend the CORC Members’ Forum, which provides a great opportunity for mental health professionals, service leads, commissioners and managers to come together and reflect on recent learning in the use of outcome measurement in child and adolescent mental health services. Forums include keynote speakers from across child mental health and wellbeing support services, as well as workshops, seminars and discussions on the development of routine outcome measurement and the CORC collaboration.
