Join our board!

We are recruiting for people to join our board of trustees!

Indigo Volunteers believes in the power of people. We enable people to work together to support refugees and displaced people in Europe. We work alongside a community of incredible grassroots charities, volunteers, sector experts, and humanitarian organisations that are positively dedicated to supporting communities coping with displacement, inequality, and social injustice.

Our Vision

To be the leading voice in responsible volunteering, empowering a network of grassroots humanitarians who work together to grow and thrive.

We connect, share, and facilitate

We connect and match volunteers to humanitarian organisations.

We share resources and capacity building opportunities.

We facilitate training and psycho-social support for our community.

Indigo is looking for board members to support us in running and growing the charity to achieving our vision. We would love applications from people who have:

  • Previous board, governance, and/or strategic experience

  • Lived experience

  • Knowledge and understanding of the European refugee crisis and the grassroots volunteer sector

  • A positive and ‘can-do’ outlook

  • We particularly welcome trustees from unrepresented (or minority) groups - race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.

Indigo Volunteers is against discrimination of any kind. We are committed to upholding an equal and inclusive working environment irrespective of race, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, mental health, religion, or age.

We recognise that unconscious bias and internalised prejudice are present in the sector and so we actively work to educate ourselves in ally-ship and non-discriminatory practice.

We recognise that having a diversity of experiences and perspectives is crucial to growing and improving as an organisation and particularly welcome applications from a wide variety of backgrounds who are motivated by these values and who can drive and inspire change for refugees and displaced people.
