The Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) is the UK’s leading membership organisation that collects and uses evidence to improve children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Founded in 2002 by a group of mental health professionals determined to understand the impact of their work, today CORC members include mental health service providers, schools, professional bodies and research institutions from across Europe and beyond.

CORC analyses and interprets data relating to mental health and wellbeing outcomes of more than 400,000 children and young people in the UK, representing the largest data set of this kind worldwide.

History of CORC

CORC started in 2002 as a joint initiative between five founding services (Bedfordshire & Luton; Leeds; Enfield, Barnet & Haringey; Tavistock & Portman; and Hertfordshire), and was from the outset a collaboration between front-line clinicians, managers and administrative leads in member services. With support from the National CAMHS Support Service (NCSS) and facilitation from the National Institute of Mental Health England (NIMHE), CORC opened to wider membership in April 2004.
CORC expanded to include the regional team in 2014 and moved head office to King's Cross.
