BROMOHD - The Practice’ is a culmination of my 30 years of social work experience.  The name BROMOHD ( pronounced 'Brother Mohamed', is a term of endearment used by those who knew me. Some even called me 'Brudder', for short.

 

I began my career in 1991, as a Medical Social Worker in the Singapore General Hospital specialising in helping patients with cardiac conditions. I was also a member of the Heart Transplant Multidisciplinary team.

 

In 1999,  I led a team to set up the Medical Social Work Department of the National Heart Centre. I joined the Singapore Muslim Women Association (PPIS) in 2000 as the Centre Head of its Family Service Centre. I was promoted to the position of Senior Director in 2010 and made history as PPIS’s first male CEO in 2016.

In 2009, I received the Singapore President’s Outstanding Social Worker Award (OSWA), the highest honour for a social worker.

 

My experience in community development and social work has allowed me to serve in various committees.  My past involvement included serving as a member of the Fostering Committee of the Ministry of Community Development, Youths & Sports ( now renamed the Ministry of Social and Family Development), the Social Service Research Centre SSR Advisory Board, the National Family Council, the FamilyTribunal and the AIC Medifund Committee.

 

Currently, I am serving as a member of the Civil Legal Aid Means Test Panel, the National Heart Centre Medifund Advisory Committee and the Social Work Accreditation & Advisory Board.

I also teach social work under the S R Nathan School of Human Development in the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).

With my wealth of social work practice, programme development, and administrative and leadership experience, I now offer individual and group social work supervision, training, mentoring, group work facilitation, programme development and consultancy.

I graduated in 1991 from the National University of Singapore, majoring in Social Work, and hold a Masters in Social Work from the Singapore University of Social Science.
