Broadview Circle of Friends (Circle 122) was opened in 2020 by Rachel Lafain and her supporters in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Circle originally coordinated a short term food and essentials distribution project for people on bridging and temporary visas who had lost work due to COVID-19. This work was supported by several University of South Australia social work placement students.
Now through the worst of the pandemic, the Boradview Circle is raising funds to provide urgent rent and bill assistance to asylum seekers and refugees with no safety net, such as access to Centrelink. These funds are sometimes distributed via other Circles. The Circle has also continued to provide resume and cover letter support, and other administrative support such as negotiating payment plans for large bills.
