Description

Our repair cafe offers students, staff and members of the public the chance to have their broken items fixed. The cafe is run by students and community repair volunteers and supported by technicians and academic staff.

What we can repair

Items that can be repaired may include electricals and small appliances, clothes and anything that can be glued, soldered or stitched.

Please note that we don’t currently have the capacity to fix phones and other devices, we recommend contacting Fix My Crack in the Sustainability Hub for these repairs.

This is a voluntary service – all repairs are done at your discretion and there is no guarantee that your item will be fixed. 

Get involved

Repair cafes are all about skill sharing and community, so please feel free to ask lots of questions.

You can also get involved as a repairer. Please contact kat.corbett@uwe.ac.uk for more info on how to join the team.

Registration

When you first arrive, please come to the check-in desk by the stairs to book your item in for repair. This will help us keep a record of how much waste is saved from landfill – we are also aiming to calculate the carbon footprint where relevant data is available.

Once checked in, take a seat in the waiting area until it’s your turn. Feel free to bring your lunch, as long as you keep it away from the work area!
