Youth and families

We're thrilled to announce we’ve received funding to develop a voice-activated assistant for Ask Izzy, thanks to the Telstra Foundation.

Infoxchange will deliver a new program in Geelong and Wangaratta to help at-risk youth and youth experiencing disadvantage gain the digital skills they need for the jobs of the future.

We’ve put together some examples below to demonstrate the sort of data you can gather from the Ask Izzy Open Data Platform, to hopefully inspire you to start digging around yourself.

On any given night in Australia, almost 28,000 young people are homeless. Help us break the cycle of youth homelessness by supporting Ask Izzy. 

There have now been more than 1 million searches for help on Ask Izzy since it was launched in early 2016 – but we're not celebrating.

As part of our Ask Izzy Help at Hand project, we recently conducted a series of co-design research workshops and interviews with organisations delivering family violence services, as well as survivors of family violence.

Ask Izzy now has a quick exit button to help increase safety for people at risk or experiencing family violence.

Find out what the latest data is telling us two years on from the launch of Ask Izzy, the mobile website that connects people in need to housing, meals, support and counselling and more.

For Arthur Tomaras at Ingen IT, giving back to the community is an important part of his personal philosophy, and it’s important to Ingen IT as well. That's why they decided to help a young person kick start their career.
