ACCESS Health Consultant’s Bereaved Caregivers Project Receives Seed Funding
ACCESS Health Southeast Asia Consultant Miguel Tan took part in the Design4Impact (D4I) challenge, an open platform inviting innovators to co-create sustainable community-owned solutions supported by the Ministry of Health Office for Healthcare Transformation. This year’s theme was “Uplifting Vulnerable Families in Singapore.”
His team’s idea, Project Be-Care, was selected as one of the top three ideas to be piloted in the community. Be-Care aims to uplift bereaved caregivers by providing ready access to counseling and grief support services. It also offers employment schemes such as job counseling and apprenticeships to help those who are unemployed re-enter the workforce, and ultimately re-discover their personal identities.
