Repair Cafes

Do you have a broken item?

If you have a broken item that you’d like fixing but don’t know how, don't bin it, fix it at one of Staffordshire's Repair Cafes.

As a nation we are consuming resources at a faster rate than the planet can support. We need to try and reduce the amount of new stuff we buy and to keep the things we do have in use for longer. 

Volunteer repairers are available to mend a range of items from electrical goods to clothing, garden tools, furniture and bikes. Where possible you will sit with the repairer and you may get some new skills to allow you to mend or repurpose things in the future.

The repair cafés do not serve food, but they do offer light refreshments and a fantastic community service, sharing their knowledge to prolong the life of your much loved items.

The repair services are free, but donations are welcome to cover the costs of running the events. Goods beyond repair can be taken to any of Staffordshire’s Recycling Centres.

All the cafés welcome enquiries from potential volunteers. Please contact them direct.
