About Share and Repair: 


Share and Repair is a small but dynamic Charity Incorporated Organisation (CIO)  which aims to change mindsets and  behaviour through the promotion of sharing and repairing to reduce carbon emissions and  build cohesive communities. We currently run four main activities: Repair Cafes (‘Mend it, don’t end it’); a Library of Things (‘Borrow don’t buy’); HOW TO  Workshops to empower individuals (‘Do more yourself’) and HomeKit (supporting low income families in a new home). All activities have a positive  environmental impact and we are passionate about reducing spending and landfill. We aim to provide services for all age groups and local communities. We have a small number of part-time paid staff and a large group of talented, enthusiastic volunteers. 


We started in 2017 with Repair Cafes as a Community Organisation, became a charity in 2020 and opened a shop in central Bath. The shop is home for our Library of Things but we also run regular repair sessions, provide information on all our services and want to develop this space. The HOW TO Workshops (HTW), currently include HOW TO  use a sewing machine, HOW TO use power and hand tools, HOW TO maintain a bike and HOW RO do visible darning and often run alongside one of our Repair Cafés. HomeKit supports new households with ‘starter’ small electrical household equipment. These events and activities build skills and help to generate cohesive communities, as well as the reduction of manufacturing, waste to landfill, and spending.


This is an exciting opportunity for someone to use their skills and experience to make a difference locally and nationally to the community and environment.
