The network so far...
We are an emerging network of community groups and networks in the UK who run local repair events and support others to do the same. Learn more about us.
Share & Repair Bath
Bath & North East Somerset
Share & Repair is a charity in Bath and North East Somerset. Our aims are to help local people save money and the planet through reduce, repair and reuse. We do this through the Share and Repair Shop in central Bath – where our Library of Things is based – via monthly Repair Cafés and regular HOW TO workshops.
The Cambridgeshire Repair Café Network
We support new and established Repair Cafes in Cambridgeshire with the aim of having a Repair Cafe on every High Street. We run regular ‘How to run a Repair Cafe in your community’ training sessions, help to link new Repair Cafes to local experienced repairers, lend out tools, facilitate repairer skillshares and help with things like insurance. There are over 30 Repair Cafes in the Cambridgeshire Repair Café Network run by community groups, technology companies, PTA’s, Parish Council’s and others. We have been generously supported by Draper Tools, Mackays of Cambridge, Sentec a Xylem brand, 42T, Cambridge City Council, South Cambridgeshire Council & Cambridgeshire County Council. We are keen to make new connections so please get in touch if you’re interested in helping people to get things fixed.
Cornwall Repair Café Network
The Cornwall Repair Café Network is here to support repair cafes. Both start-ups and those that have been running for a while. With the wider aim of creating community, teaching new skills and challenging throw-away culture.
Repair Café Glasgow
Glasgow & beyond
Repair Café Glasgow hosts monthly repair events in spaces across Glasgow where people can get help to fix broken things.
Hampshire Repair Café Network
Hampshire County area
The Hampshire Repair Café Network is an informal group which supports new and existing Repair Cafes in Hampshire through sharing knowledge and best practice. Hampshire County Council hosts the group and provides promotional and training support. If you run an existing Repair Café or are planning to set one up, please get in touch for more information.
The Restart Project
London (and beyond)
The Restart Project helps people learn how to repair their broken electronics, and rethink how they consume them in the first place. We also build digital tools for community groups and campaign for the Right to Repair. Join us at a Restart Party!
Repair Cafe West Midlands
In 2015 an Awards for All grant enabled Repair Cafe Malvern Hills (RCMH) to provide practical, resource and financial support to community groups establishing Repair Cafes in Worcester, Kington, Bewdley, Kidderminster, Redditch, Tewkesbury and Evesham. This initial Repair Cafe Herefordshire and Worcestershire Network evolved into Repair Cafe West Midlands in 2019 with the opening of a further five Repair Cafes in Ledbury, Kinver, Stourbridge, Alcester and Leominster. Many other community groups have asked for advice and guidance as a result of receiving RCMH’s ‘Want to Start your Own Repair Cafe? A Practical Guide’ in Repair Cafe International’s starter pack.
Marlow Repair Café
The Marlow Repair Café is an opportunity for people to learn how to fix their own items, rather than throwing them away. This can range from electronics to furniture, or from jewellery to bikes. We run monthly events in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
Repair Cafe Oxfordshire
Community Action Groups (CAG) Oxfordshire consists of over 85 groups across Oxfordshire who are at the forefront of community-led climate change action, organising events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy, biodiversity and social justice.
Repair Café Portsmouth
A monthly pop up social event where you can repair your things with the help of our friendly volunteers and enjoy a cuppa, cake and natter. Come and join us to learn how to repair and mend, save money and be part of a community sharing crafts, knowledge and creative skills.
Repair Cafe Wales
Repair Cafe Wales opens and supports repair cafés across Wales. We’re currently a network of over 50 repair cafes.
Repair Cafe Weymouth
Weymouth, West Dorset
We hold monthly repair events on the second Saturday of every month except July and August, at Top Club, Louviers Road, Weymouth DT3 6AY. About 15 repairers fix electronics, IT, mechanical, clocks, jewellery and sewing items whilst you watch. Another 15 volunteers help it to run smoothly. We don’t charge ; we just ask for a donation.
Repair and reuse photography (Mark A Phillips)
unbroken.solutions, is a photography based project, working with repair groups and advocates, that explores the impact and solutions to waste – to adopt or adapt; it explores ways to overcome barriers and identify ideas and resources that we can all use or access or demand.
