    Our staff

    Leanne Lim

    As the Overseas Singaporean Liaison for Australia and New Zealand, my role is all about reaching out to Singaporeans who live abroad, helping them stay connected and have a strong sense of belonging to Singapore. Some initiatives which I am glad to have been a part of range from dialogues with public and private sector leaders, to welcome receptions for university students, to sports clinics for children. As part of the SG Cares movement, I also find opportunities to encourage Singaporeans to step forward and give back to Singapore, even when they are overseas. 

    While my role is to reach out to Singaporeans abroad, these fellow citizens are also my strongest partners. Many of them are actively involved in ground-up groups, out of a sheer passion to grow a vibrant Singaporean community in their cities. Working together, we explore ideas to reach out to more Singaporeans, and bring people together. When I meet with Singaporeans, I also hear about the unique experiences and issues they may face living abroad, and provide advice where possible. The most wonderful part of my job is seeing the community and camaraderie develop among overseas Singaporeans. There is just something about the familiarity of our shared culture and identity which binds us together – perhaps even more so overseas!  It is my hope that every overseas Singaporean not only identifies as a Singaporean, but is also proud to be a Singaporean, no matter how far or how long one has been away.

    Prior to taking on this role, I was in the Corporate Communications Division, where my work involved media relations and getting the word out about MCCY’s programmes and policies. My time in the ministry has allowed me the opportunity for new experiences and to develop my skillsets. I am also given autonomy and support to do my best, and appreciate how I’ve grown in my career and as a person in MCCY.

    -Leanne Lim, Overseas Singaporean Unit



    I am part of the SG Cares office. The SG Cares movement is a national movement dedicated to supporting our efforts in building a more caring and inclusive society. It is championed by public agencies, corporates and community partners. The movement invites every individual to put values into action through active volunteerism, ground-up efforts and everyday acts of care. The movement also aims to build capability and resources across various sectors and organisations to grow opportunities for volunteering. By inspiring and supporting one another, we can show the world that we are a nation that cares. 

    I enjoy the work as it is meaningful to help build a better society where we care for one another and ensure that no one is left behind.
