Repair Cafe West Midlands

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.

Get involved in changing the system

Women repairing

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.
