Story

We’ve all seen the news. From the Rwanda Bill to the rise of the nationalist parties in the latest European elections, there is an undeniably growing wave of anti-refugee sentiment sweeping across Europe. 

At the same time, the United Nations projects that 20% more refugees will need resettlement support this year compared to 2023. It is more important than ever to stand in solidarity today with those who have been forcibly displaced from their homes. 


You too could be a "Refugee"

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their home due to conflict, persecution, or disaster. Being a refugee is not a choice or something that can only happen to others. 

Any one of us could become a refugee; we are one natural disaster, one national crisis or one act of war away from this harshest reality. 

In this hour of heartbreaking need, our shared humanity calls upon us to take action for refugees.  


A Rapidly Growing Need Amid Shrinking Resources

While the UN projects that 20% more refugees will need support this year, humanitarian organisations are struggling to get support where it is needed most due to a lack of funding and a shortage of volunteers.


How You Can Help

By donating to Indigo Volunteers during Refugee Week (June 17th-23rd), you are taking a stance with refugees and being part of a solution. 

Indigo’s charity partners are a lifeline to refugees: from distributing clothing and meals to essential medical care, our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to help vulnerable people find safety, stability, and a sense of home once again.

For every £1 you donate, Indigo will give refugees £23 worth of medical aid, education, integration support, legal assistance, and more by supporting humanitarian charities with responsible volunteers, expertise and resources that help them create a meaningful impact. 


Double Your Donation

Just for this week, all donations will be matched by our private donor, so join us in making double the impact during Refugee Week by

  • Donating (and exploring if your employer will match your donation)
  • Sharing our campaign with friends and family
  • Sharing our social media posts

Your participation and donations will help us continue offering vital services, aid, and safety to refugees. 


Let’s ensure our home is a place of compassion, solidarity, and support for all.

Indigo Volunteers

Indigo Volunteers is a charity that recruits volunteers and connects them with humanitarian projects across the globe. We provide a straightforward, fee-free matchmaking service, placing people where they are needed most. On our travels we have found that small grassroots organisations often do not have the time or resources to find volunteers that keep their projects running. Conversely, people who want to volunteer often don’t know where to start, and find it difficult to identify a legitimate project where their talents are really needed. Our aim is to remove these hurdles and create the connections that enable charities to keep going and focus on their objectives. Indigo was founded to challenge the exploitative practices of for-profit volunteering agencies that charge extortionate fees and seem primarily concerned with selling exotic experiences, rather than considering their actual impact. We want to ensure that volunteering remains true to its core humanitarian purpose: we believe in people helping people, and partner with grassroots charities that are positively dedicated to support communities coping with poverty, displacement and inequality.
