‘Repairing & fixing’ Handyperson Volunteers

You will be able to make a quick assessment of whether it is clearly fixable, maybe fixable with a bit of investigation or a lost cause.

Anything brought to the repair café is able to be carried and can range from small electricals to toys, clocks, jewellery, fabrics.

You might know about microwaves, clocks, kettles, TVs, music equipment or other often-broken items.

You might have sewing, jewellery making or other specialist skills or be someone who can work out ‘’how things work’’ and fix them.

It’s important that you can put back together anything you might take apart….!

You will have a selection of useful tools for your own specialism which you can bring to the events and the ability to advise us on what general tools, equipment and ‘’disposables’’ we might need to buy eg from batteries to glues (nb if any of your own things get broken we will replace them)
