Repair Cafe & Laptop Rescue

Repair Cafe

Until we can re-open our Repair Cafe in The Mix we can help you via Zoom. On the first Saturday of each month, 10-11am, we’ll have volunteers online to lend a hand with diagnosing and repairing household, electrical and textile items. If you have something in need of repair please book a slot by contacting Jo on

If you are not able to join the Zoom session, do get in touch as we are able to take in some items for our volunteers to work on at home. We can also accept unwanted electrical items which we check over, fix if needed, PAT test and pass on to a new home: if you have an item you think would be useful to someone please get in touch!

Free Laptops – we’re collecting again!

Tablets rehomed


Desktops rehomed

Any more old laptops out there? We’ve refurbished and rehomed 394 laptops since May 2020 and we’re still collecting!

If you have any old or unused laptops that our IT volunteers can refurbish, we’d love to have them. Devices that have been donated to us will be repaired where needed and set up ready to help people get online.

For further information or if you need a device, email Jo at
