We’re a network of repair cafés across Oxfordshire – reducing waste, sharing skills, and building community.

What does it look like?

What is a Repair Café?

Repair cafes are community events which match people with broken household and personal electrical and electronic items with skilled people who like fixing things. The purpose of the events is to bring about a shift away from consumerism and viewing household items as disposable. The focus is on skill-sharing and building community, as attendees will be invited to learn how to fix their broken item alongside the repairers instead of throwing them in the bin.

Who runs them?

Volunteers in community groups across the world run repair cafés. There are over a dozen already in Oxfordshire, and they’ve all been started by someone like you.

Where do I find one?

We’re working to bring together all the repair cafe events in Oxfordshire onto this website and our Facebook page – watch this space!
