Jean has a strong interest and passion for sustainable and systemic cross-sector solutioning for change. This arose from her past experiences in reviewing, redesigning and developing community-based interventions involving volunteers and partners. Jean also believes in the importance of capacity building so that staff, volunteers and service users can then go on to do more with who they are and what they have. Jean was conferred the Promising Social Worker Award in 2012. Prior to her posting to lead a preschool-based preventive development model of work with Circle of Care under Care Corner Singapore, Jean worked in the family services sector and was the agency head for two family service centres.
Kitty is passionate about capacity building in both health and social sectors. She has introduced behavioural health training to helping professionals from both hospital and community settings to increase capabilities of helping them in working with people living with chronic illnesses. In recognition of her work, Kitty was awarded the Promising Social Worker Award by the President, Dr Tony Tan in 2015. In 2018, Kitty has taken on a new role in joining the Pro-term team as a Senior Medical Social Worker at Woodlands Health Campus to help build a new healthcare system focusing on health and community integration.
