Service providers use Ask Izzy too

Ask Izzy is used by service providers, government agencies and corporate hardship teams across Australia to help clients find support.

Ask Izzy takes the hard work out of finding relevant, up-to-date, and local support services for your clients, so you don’t get bogged down in admin or referral dead ends.

Community Support & Services Network (CSSN)

The CSSN was established in October 2022 to provide a space for practitioners across all community services in Hepburn Shire to network, form contacts and relationships with one another.

An agreed action of the CSSN was to contribute to and promote ‘Ask Izzy’ to its communities to:

  • Increase visibility of services to Hepburn Shire communities
  • Increase accountability for service delivery to Hepburn Shire communities
  • Increase visibility of services between service organisations, agencies, and community groups
  • Strengthen referral networks between services
  • Identify service network gaps.
