Repair Cafe Wales opens & supports repair cafés across Wales.

In their simplest form, repair cafés are pop up events held on regular dates where the local community can get their broken household items repaired for free by volunteers.

The types of things we fix include clothes, household electrics, technology, woodwork, children’s toys, furniture, bikes.

Our Values

Waste Reduction

Repair cafés help household items have a longer life by fixing them rather than throwing them away. This reduces the volume of raw materials and energy needed to make new products. It cuts CO2 emissions by reusing instead of manufacturing new products.

Sharing Skills

By promoting a repair culture and inviting each one of our visitors to sit with a volunteer fixer, repair cafés show appreciation for the people who have practical knowledge and ensure these valuable skills are getting passed on.

Community Cohesion

Repair cafés promote social cohesion in the community by connecting local residents from very different backgrounds and with different motives with each other through an inspiring and low-key event.
