About

Infoxchange supports Australia’s social justice sector by providing online technology services including the ‘Ask Izzy’ website. 

It is a resource for people seeking information and requiring assistance from not-for-profit organisations.

A grant from Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation is enabling Infoxchange to increase their capacity for Ask Izzy to provide timely, accurate and location-specific information to help people in urgent need of support to connect to critical housing, legal advice, family violence support and emergency relief specific to COVID-19. Ask Izzy also includes a list of all coronavirus clinic locations.

Recognising the critical need to help those newly vulnerable and unemployed, Infoxchange has improved search results by providing critical guidance not only about where to find help, but how to approach that help, and other helpful considerations.

Ask Izzy continues to work with Justice Connect and other expert agencies to provide COVID-19 related information online to prevent people from entering a cycle of poverty.
