About Worthing Repair Cafe

Repair Cafes are free meeting places where people can come together to repair household items that might otherwise end up in landfill.

At the Transition Worthing Repair Cafe you’ll find volunteers, with appropriate tools to help you repair all kinds of things. Some repairs need more expertise than others, so you can learn new skills, make new friends and have someone there to guide you. Or you can simply come along and have a cuppa and see what it’s all about. 

Each month we hope to have different themes. See our upcoming repair café events to see which repairs will be available.

Please use our online booking form here if you are bringing something to repair, to ensure the right repairer is available and to help avoid queuing.
