Repair cafe

We throw away vast amounts of stuff - even things with almost nothing wrong, and which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair. The trouble is, lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves or they no longer know how.

Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). You find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need to clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, et cetera. You’ll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields.

If you would like to find out more about what is involved in starting a Repair Cafe on the Island or in your local community come and hear about the experiences of other Repair Cafes and the next steps that are involved.
