Head of Casework & Social Services

Joined 1 July 2010

Jeffrey began his journey with HealthServe since 2010 as a volunteer helping to organise events for migrant workers. This has been a fruitful change from working with machines to being relational due to his regular interaction with the many migrants he meets every day at work. He graduated with a Masters in Social Work from the Singapore University of Social Sciences.

He has made many visits to China and keeps in touch with the many beneficiaries who have been through HealthServe’s door. Besides his love for China and coffee, he has had many experiences including performing in the opera chorus on the Esplanade stage several times!
