St Kilda Repair Cafe

Repairing goods, sharing skills & knowledge, reducing landfill & household spend, while celebrating community

Become a volunteer fixer/mender  


Progress to date – as at July 2018

We started in November 2017 and in the 8 repair cafes we’ve had so far our wonderful volunteer fixers have fixed 108 items, with another 49 needing some extra parts. That’s a total of 296 kg of ‘stuff’ saved from landfill, not to mention many happy people (see the photos elsewhere on this website).

If you’re interested in helping keep the St Kilda Repair Cafe up and running, please contact John Hillel:

– by phone 9807 9653

– by email  stkilda.repaircafe@gmail.com

– or fill in the form on our Get involved page.

Please note: 

All our fixers are VOLUNTEERS, and there is no charge made for the fixes they do. However any donations people would like to make are welcomed to help us cover our costs (website, glues & other materials used from time to time.)

Where we are
