We support our members and others to collect and improve the quality of their data relating to children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing outcomes, as well as collating it centrally on behalf of the whole consortium. This includes:

  • Providing access to routine outcome measures and other key resources
  • Advising on which outcome measures are most appropriate for different purposes
  • Supporting organisations to collect and use data from routine outcome measures, including guidance on information governance regulations and data cleaning
  • Improving data collection processes
  • Collecting and managing the CORC data set, which includes data from our members as well as other organisations and is the largest data set of its kind on children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing outcomes

To support this work, CORC has developed an essential guide to choosing and using outcome measures, including recommendations on the best approaches to take. The guide explains what outcome measures are, copyright considerations and who has permission to use them, how to choose the right measure, ways to introduce using measures with children and young people and an introduction to how to analyse the data.

Members, and those interested in membership, can find out more about how CORC can receive and analyse their service/organisation data on our Data analysis and reporting page

Education professionals will find useful information on the dedicated support and advice on measuring the impact of mental health and wellbeing care in a schools setting on our CORC for Schools page.
