Registration is now open for this year's CORC Members Forum on 21st November 2019. CORC Forums bring together members and non-members from a wide range of service, research, commissioning and policy contexts across child and youth services, including both professionals and interested service users.

Sign up to the CORC Forum: finding shared approaches in diverse systems, 21st November

Can we develop common approaches to outcome measurement across the many and varied providers of mental health and wellbeing support for children and young people? This year's CORC Forum will focus on finding shared approaches in diverse systems, 21st November

We hope you are able to join us at the CORC Forum where members can network and hear about recent research findings along with the experience and learning of other members, and young people's views on developments in outcome measurement. The agenda will include a variety of different practical and academic perspectives which will fuel interesting discussion and learning.

Hear from:

  • Colleagues at the World Economic Forum, who will be speaking about their work to devise a global unifying model of youth mental health care

  • Partners from the DfE-funded Link Programme - bringing together education and mental health professionals across the country so that more children and young people get the help and support they need when they need it

  • CORC members from the Belfast and South Eastern Trust, who will share their experience of joining up skills and experiences using outcome measures within CAMHS across Northern Ireland

Kate Dalzell

Practice Improvement Manager

Kate is the Head of the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC). She heads up the CORC team that supports practitioners and organisations to work with outcome measures and collect outcome data on the ground, and to use that to develop services and strengthen commissioning. Kate is also the Head of Innovation and Dissemination at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. Kate’s background is in service development in a local authority context, and in particular applying data-driven approaches to embed a focus on outcomes. She has been active in improving service collaboration and coordination around community needs through her work across a range of public, voluntary and community sector bodies – in particular in regeneration contexts. Recently Kate has overseen our work to tailor CORC approaches to best support schools and voluntary organisations, as well as area-based projects to embed and develop outcome-focussed approaches to commissioning, and CORC support for the six areas involved in the Big Lottery HeadStart programme.
