The Australian Government is funding enhancements to Ask Izzy to help Aussies doing it tough during COVID-19.

We’ve broken down some of the latest data to show how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the way people in need are searching for help on Ask Izzy.

The Ask Izzy Plus project is exploring ways to enhance Ask Izzy to better support frontline workers.

As our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this bushfire crisis, we’ve hit the ground running with our response to ensure we’re getting the people and communities affected access to the help they need.

Mental health and homelessness advocate Elvis Martin shares some of his personal experiences and tells us how they led to his involvement with Ask Izzy.

Supported by the Telstra Foundation, we’re developing Ask Izzy to provide a more conversational, personalised and supportive way to connect young people experiencing homelessness to crucial services.

The latest Ask Izzy data points to a growing food security crisis in Australia.

We visited City of Melbourne Library to show them how Ask Izzy can be used to easily direct their patrons to nearby support services.

Infoxchange staff have braved the cold to sleep out at the MCG, raising funds to support young people experiencing homelessness. Team member Stephanie Livingstone shares her thoughts on the experience.
