Repair Cafe Wales
We are a Community Interest Company that facilitates pop-up events, offering training and advice to encourage communities that want to work towards a more Circular Economy, creating a culture of repair and re-use, directly addressing the ever-growing emergency of unsustainable growth in landfill and waste.
We recognise that the shift of humanity into a throw-away society is not a sustainable one.
Committed to facilitating the opening of repair cafés in every town, village, city and suburb in Wales, we are focusing our energies on nurturing a cleaner, more sustainable world whilst our communities are inclusive and safe environments for people of all ages and backgrounds to share knowledge, skills, and to generally connect.
Our communities repair toasters, rebuild coffee tables and repurpose jeans or dresses, we restore confidence, we reskill those who want to learn, and we remind ourselves of the importance of communication, cooperation and community spirit.
The social and environmental benefits of Repair Cafe Wales are evidenced in the growing levels of local demand to launch repair cafés.
This response reflects increasing public concern over the climate emergency and positively indicates a motivation amongst our society to come together and take practical steps towards a solution.
We are working for our communities to influence standards for goods and government policy, collecting data from our community hubs, and helping to inform policy decisions that promote a greener, more sustainable world.
