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
Our Repair Cafes are part of Circular Cambridge, an initiative that celebrates progressive ways to design, manufacture, access, repair and reuse the things that we want and need in our lives. There are over 20 Cafes in the Cambridgeshire Repair Café Network run by community groups, PTA’s, Parish Council’s and others and generously supported by Draper Tools and Mackay’s of Cambridge. We regularly run ‘How to organise a Repair Café in your community’ skillshares, do get in touch to find out more.

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.
The Restart Project
London (and beyond)
Get involved in changing the system
We are involved in the global movement calling for The Right to Repair. The goal is to ensure that everyone has the right to fix the products they own. It aims to change regulations on how our devices are made in the first place, to make them easy and affordable to repair, as well as to expand our rights after purchase.
