Repair Café Glasgow
Grab coffee, tea and tasty treats! Chat with old friends and make new ones. Our cafe is here during events to help make you feel comfortable and welcome while your item is being assessed and hopefully repaired.
Sometimes a very simple repair is all that is needed to fix a broken or damaged item. This saves the unnecessary cost of a replacement. When we send less waste to landfill, environmental costs are also reduced and the whole community benefits!
Repair extends a product's useable life, reduces waste and pollution, and saves energy, carbon emissions and finite non-renewable resources. It reduces the need to recycle which can deplete more resources than producing something new.
Repair Café Glasgow has been awarded a grant of £91,596* from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund to save a wide variety of items from landfill by offering Repair Café sessions at locations including Kinning Park Complex. The project will also help the community to develop practical DIY skills so they can fix their own possessions. A variety of opportunities will be provided to help people learn more about climate change.
*Includes maximum funding of £36,638 from the European Regional Development Fund.
