Repair Cafe Wales is one of the fastest growing community interest companies in Wales and have an energetic and ambitious board who are keen to make sure everyone has access to a repair event. Repair cafes are now opening up all over the country, did you know that we have 27 events running across the UK under the Repair Café Wales banner?!
It’s great to see the movement grow like this, and all because of the work our volunteers put in, organising events each month; where handy helpers give their time to fix things free of charge for the people in our communities.
It’s an exciting time to be involved with the organisation but, as we grow, we need more help, more resources, more expertise. We’d welcome interest from anyone who would like to get more involved with the organisational aspects of the Repair Café movement?
Do you have 3-4 hours per week free to help Repair Cafe Wales? We would like to build a team to help us meet operational demands. Can anyone put their hands up to help with any of the following roles:
