Across the world people are facing varying levels of challenge, change and adversity within their community. This creates a significant amount of emotional stress and strain, which in turn affects the equilibrium of family, workplace and community environments.

We recognise that communities need to have the capability to create Emotional Safety within and around them, by building Emotional Resilience in children, young people and adults.

It is this Emotional Safety which becomes the foundation stone upon which countries enjoy community cohesion, stimulate innovation and create the control of emotional wellbeing.

An Infrastructure to Add-in New Capability

Back in 2012 our founder, Jay Baughan recognised a significant need for community learning & development to create a specific awareness and the capability to establish Emotional Safety. Across the world he found that Public, Private and Non-Profit sector teams, and the individuals and families within communities simply had no access to the specific quality assured learning & development resources, which would improve how they managed the emotional dynamics they faced, and which influenced community Emotional Safety.

Over the years Jay has developed the SEDi learning, development and research infrastructure. First he forged collaborative relationships with trusted experts across FIVE key areas which affect Emotional Safety & Resilience, to then create a unique learning & development portfolio.

Then came a digital environment to overlay an enviable geographical footprint, created through partnerships which embedded SEDi into countries to offer a new support for large-scale community learning. Since 2015, Jay has focused upon building relationships and providing support into the heart of communities.

Today, SEDi is a community of learning and development, with a digital and geographic footprint which spans Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
