The events will be promoted to members of the public who have small broken electrical items eg soup maker, hairdryer etc who can bring their item along to see if it can be repaired.

We are looking for volunteers with suitable skills (and hopefully tools) to come along to the repair cafés to assess and, where possible, repair electrical items brought in by members of the public.

Whilst these events are one-off events we hope to stimulate interest within local communities for running repair cafés on a regular basis which will help reduce waste and build local community resilience.
