About Repair Cafés

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. The Repair Café changes all that! People who might otherwise be sidelined are get involved again. Valuable practical knowledge is gets passed on. Things are used for longer and don’t have to be thrown away. The Repair Café teaches people to see their possessions in a new light.

But most of all, the Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. Let’s start one in Dudley!
