Get involved

We're always looking for fixers and volunteers of all kinds!

Our repair sessions are run entirely by volunteers who help out in lots of different ways. Most are fixers who working with visitors to who bring in broken items to be fixed.  But we also need people to help manage the overall running of the repair cafe,  including registering visitors, supporting the fixers, and generally doing whatever else needs to get done. It's not a huge commitment; each repair cafe runs for just 3 hours, with some set-up and take-down on either end. You wouldn't be expected to come to every repair session, although of course you're more than welcome to!

The working group that plans  the St Kilda Repair Cafe might get together for a short meeting once a month at the most.

Please join us - it's a great team and a most worthwhile venture!

Become a volunteer fixer

Do you like fixing things? Mending things that are broken or torn? 

The Repair Cafe needs people with skills at fixing household items such as clothing/textiles, jewellery, books, shoes, bikes, small furniture, computers, electronics, small appliances and more!

If you are happy to show people how they can fix things themselves, even better!

Help run a repair session

We also need volunteers for general 'admin' tasks essential to the smooth running of the Repair Cafe.

To help set up, register visitors, offer refreshments, photograph success stories, and promote the cafe (skills in using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc would be great!)
