Repair Cafés

Repair cafés are a worldwide network on a mission to cut waste and build up repair skills. If you have something that needs fixing, repair cafés can help you mend it. This helps prevent items being thrown away and saves the cost of buying a replacement. It's better for the environment with less materials and energy needed to make new goods.

There are 16 repair cafes across Derbyshire. Our closest ones are Crich, Belper, Wirksworth and Chesterfield.
