The Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations is proud to announce the promotion of Lorraine Lim from Head, Direct Services to Deputy CEO, Designate.
Lorraine has been with SCWO for 10 years, since 2011. Prior to her being a permanent employee, she had been a Volunteer Counsellor for Star Shelter. Of course, when the Star Shelter Counsellor left, she was very quickly offered the position of Star Shelter Administrator and Counsellor in September 2011. Lorraine was promoted to Manager-Star Shelter in 2015. When asked to take on the added responsibility of managing MSC as well, she did it willingly. In May 2020, her designation was changed to Head-Direct Services to better reflect her responsibilities.
During her time in SCWO, she constantly upgraded herself by attending several courses, and even successfully completed the Graduate Diploma in Social Work in 2019.
Lorraine represents SCWO on the Family Violence Task Force, and is one of the co-chairs for the FGD Sub-Committee. In 2020, she was nominated by UWS for the FVDG Appreciation Award and selected by MSF to win the award.
