Huddersfield Repair Cafe​

Get it fixed

Whether it’s beloved but broken, no longer for sale or you just don’t want to cough up the dough for a new one, the Huddersfield Repair Cafe is here to help.

Bring your items along, and let’s see if we can fix them, and keep them out of the landfill.

And yep; it’s totally free!

Electrics, electronics, computers, mechanics, wood and metal working, and anyone with DIY skills.

You don’t have to be able to fix things to join in and help, either. The repair cafe wouldn’t run without our front-of-house volunteers, so there’s plenty to do for anyone who wants to get involved.

Get involved with the repair cafe

Join us and make a real difference to the environment, while saving money.

Repairing and reusing are the purest forms of recycling!

Get stuff fixed

Visit one of our repair cafes and bring along your items that need repairing. The more you get things fixed, the less you're adding to the landfill.

Come and fix things

If you're handy when it comes to DIY or repairs, join the team and become one of our fixer volunteers.

A culture of fixing

The repair cafe’s ethos is found in the old call to arms of, “make do and mend!”

It’s the antidote to a disposable society.

The opposition to weaponised capitalism.

We’re fighting back against the built-in obsolescence that drives consumer greed.

right to repair

Our friends over at iFixit, who’ve supported Huddersfield Repair Cafe very generously, explain the personal, community and environmental benefits of repairing, and learning to repair, very eloquently. Check it out, and take a good look around iFixit while you’re there.

What is a repair cafe?

Our organisation ninjas will book you in, take some details about your item that needs repairing, and you’ll join our fixer as they look at getting it working again.

It’s super simple, and it’s totally free.
