Darebin Repair Cafe

How DRC works…..

Darebin Repair Cafe is fully volunteer run. It is a three hour event which runs every 2 months at a location in Darebin. We are part of the International Repair Cafe Foundation.

Our fixers are volunteers who have a skill they share, e.g. sewing, craft, jewellery repairs, gluing, and electrical work in household appliances.

Due to high demand we have a booking system in place. Registration opens a few weeks prior to the event where a person can book a repair spot.

On the day we track and weigh items so we can measure what is saved from landfill. The fixer sits with you and helps you troubleshoot and fix your your item together.

Since we started in May 2018, we have given new life to over 1.5 tonnes of items which would otherwise have gone to landfill.

We welcome anyone who has time/skills to offer to help us run this worthwhile and very fulfilling event.

We are part of the international Repair Cafe movement to keep things out of landfill.
