Broome CIRCLE was formed in 1982 by a group of women in response to the isolation they experienced living away from extended families. They created Broome CIRCLE to connect with and support one another. Incorporated in 1988, Broome CIRCLE began by extending programming to families, providing key community services and social support across the Shire. In the late 1990s, Broome CIRCLE won a tender to provide financial management and financial capability services to people in financial crisis in the area. More recently, Broome CIRCLE has been funded to coordinate the Broome Volunteer Resource Service.
