Repair Café Glasgow is back at Kinning Park Complex and we are on a mission to save your items from waste.

We host monthly events in spaces across the city where people can get help to fix their broken things for free and share repair skills all in an effort to fight a throwaway culture.

Do you have a broken lamp that needs to be fixed? Maybe a hole in your favourite jumper? Our team of volunteer repairers will be on hand to help you mend your broken handheld items such as clothes, electrical and electronic items. This month we will be joined by Alis Le May from Decent Projects CIC and MEND sessions who will be on hand to help you with all your textile repairs! If we can't manage to fix your items then we direct you to somewhere that can or alternatively the best place to recycle them.

"Knowing there is an affordable community-based service to lengthen the life of many of the products I choose to buy means I can be more active in my environmental choices" - Jessica, Repair Café Glasgow participant

Repair Café Glasgow is supported by the Climate Challenge Fund and the European Regional Development Fund. The Climate Challenge Fund provides grants and support for community-led organisations to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce carbon local emissions. The European Regional Development Fund comes from the European Structural and Investment Fund which helps to facilitate major investments to support transformational change and economic and social structural reforms across Scotland.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Repair Cafè Glasgow are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
