Friends and Partners

Help Refugees
Help Refugees' initial grants enabled us to conduct our refugee & migrant work in Greece. Since then, with their support, we have been able to expand our reach to Serbia, Bosnia, France and Lebanon. We love Help Refugees' work and are proud to work so closely with them.
Go Travel and Talk
Go Travel and talk is a travel network connecting people, places, and organisations, empowering each other to explore, share and impact. They provide a community blog space and detailed travel guides, serving as a resource for impactful travel experiences.
Choose Love
The Choose Love shops, run by Help Refugees, allow the public to buy real products that refugees desperately need. This might be a life jackets or kids' clothing. Their iconic T-shirt has been sported by everyone from Julia Roberts & Oprah Winfrey to our own Camilla Thurlow
Choose Love store
Moët & Chandon
Moët have been an incredible supporter over the last 2 years. Without them, indiGO simply would not be here. Their amazing staff have organised multiple fundraisers for us which has supported our work in the Refugee Crisis and our Community Development work
