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 a new location in King's Cross.
