Waste Reduction - Repair cafés help household items be used for longer rather than throwing them away.
Sharing Skills - Repair cafés show appreciation for the people who have practical knowledge and ensure these valuable skills are getting passed on.
Community Cohesion - Connecting local residents from very different backgrounds and with different motives with each other through an inspiring and low-key event.
Repair Cafe Wales opens & supports repair cafés across Wales. In their simplest form, repair cafés are pop up events located on regular dates where the local community can get their broken household items repaired for free by volunteers. The types of things we fix include clothes, household electrics, technology, woodwork, children’s toys, furniture, bikes.
