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

What is a Repair Café?

Repair cafes are community events which match people with broken household and electronic items, bikes and often clothing 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.

Oxfordshire Recycles visited Wolvercote Repair Cafe to find out more. Watch the video here:

Who Runs Repair Cafés?

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 them?

We keep an updated list of regular repair cafe’s. Go to the Find a Repair Cafe page to find your local one.

I’m interested in starting my own Repair Cafe
