Repair Cafes are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who like fixing things. Our local, experienced, volunteer repairers repair all sorts of household items such as kettles, toasters, lamps, laptops, clothes, toys, bikes and more. All repairs are free, although we welcome donations to support our growing network. There are over 30 different organisers – community groups, technology companies, PTAs, Parish Councils and others – who run Repair Cafes within the Cambridgeshire Repair Cafe Network. Bookings are managed independently by each Repair Cafe, and usually include a combination of both pre-booked and walk-in slots. You can see a list of upcoming Repair Cafes at the bottom of this page.
The Cambridgeshire Repair Cafe Network is run by Cambridge Carbon Footprint. We support new and established Repair Cafes in Cambridgeshire. We hold 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. We have been generously supported by Draper Tools, Mackays of Cambridge, Sentec a Xylem brand, 42 Technology, Cambridge City Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council & Cambridgeshire County Council. We are always keen to make new contacts, so please get in touch if you’re interested in helping people to get things fixed.
