About Edge Development Centre
'Practices that work'
Founded in 2018 and endorsed by HKGCSE, Edge Development Centre (Edge) is a social enterprise that aspires to be a service-providing think-tank comprising of front-line clinical professionals. It is an innovation for innovations where front-line clinicians could rally around, proposing systematic solutions to social problems/ service gaps. We empower front-line clinicians to be the difference they want to see, and we encourage bottom-up evidence-based practice (EBP). Through multi-disciplinary collaboration and strong adhesion to the scientific methods, we actualize 'Practices that work' in both macro (society-level) and micro (client-level) perspectives.
Edge started off with merely two founding directors. Front-line professionals with diverse specialties, who share the vision with the Centre, gather to form an extensive network. It is now a multi-disciplinary workforce capable of actualizing innovations and delivering high quality clinical services. It is also one of the organizations that houses the largest number of serving EducationalPsychologists in Hong Kong.
