Volunteer

Thank you for considering coming to volunteer in Northern Greece

There are a fluctuating number of grassroots projects operating throughout the region, which are constantly seeking volunteers to join and support their teams. We regularly need to fill a diverse range of roles, from carrying out food and clothing distribution from the warehouse, to supporting hygiene, shelter, psychosocial support, medical care, and information services.

Help Refugees and Indigo Volunteers help to coordinate volunteers, funding, and aid donations amongst grassroots projects and smaller organisations operating in the Northern Greece. We recognise that it is difficult to independently match your skills and availability with the needs of different projects, so we have tried to bridge the gap, to help volunteers make the most of their skills and experience with projects that have the greatest demand / need for help at the time.

Most of our short-term volunteers work from our warehouse site in western Thessaloniki, where we always need hands to get stuck in the sorting and distribution of donations. Soul Food Kitchen, the Food Project, and the Get Sh*t Done Team are all grassroots projects that also operate from our warehouse site, and are another great way to get involved if you are only here for a short time.

If you can commit to more than 3 weeks and have the relevant skills, we will try to find you a suitable placement with one of our projects. See our list of urgent volunteer needs for grassroots groups in the region, and be sure to highlight this in your application to us.

Before applying to volunteer, please ensure you have read the Planning your trip, FAQs and Code of Conduct.
