N'ah then. What's this 'ere Repair Cafe thing?

Repair cafes are a community project to promote sustainability by encouraging people to repair broken items instead of discarding them.

People bring items like electronics, clothing, and household appliances to be fixed, for free, with the help of skilled volunteers.

This helps reduce waste, saves money, and preserves traditional repair knowledge. It fosters a culture of community spirit and promotes a more sustainable world by showing that repair is a better option than replacement.

Aye, it's totally free

Volunteering

We’re always keen for more people to join us at Slawit Repair Cafe. No matter what your expertise is, there’s lots to do to help keep the Repair Cafe running smoothly.

Fixers

Fixers are the people who repair the items that visitors bring in to the Repair Cafe.

We get a wide range of items, from kitchen appliances and laptops to teddy bears and garden chairs, so we’re always on the lookout for people with different skills.

Admin

The Repair Cafe couldn’t run without our admin helpers; the people who meet and greet the public, take details about the items, and keeping everything organised and running smoothly on the day.

The importance of this aspect of a Repair Cafe can’t be overstated.

So even if you aren’t a fixer, there are valuable ways to volunteer at the Repair Cafe and to make a huge impact.
