Volunteering

Share & Repair has an enthusiastic group of volunteers helping to reduce waste in and around Bath. As we continue to grow, we need MORE help.  If you have time, skills – or simply an interest in what we do – why not get involved? Our volunteers do things such as:

  • Get hands-on and use their repair skills to fix electricals, clothes, homewares
  • Provide admin support at our regular Repair Cafés
  • Serve refreshments to visitors and chat
  • Staff the Library of Things
  • Project manage a Repair Café or a pop-up event 

Our Current Vacancies

Front desk at the Library of Things 

Can you space just an hour a week to staff the Library of Things? (Basic computer skills required) 

Project manager

Could you put your organisational skills to good use and help set up and run our new skills-sharing ‘How To’ workshops? We need people to project manage these. No repair skills required as we already have volunteers in place.  

Electronics/electrics repairers

Do you like fixing things?Many visitors to our Repair Cafes bring along broken electronics and electrical items. We always have space for extra repairers who can mend a kettle, or a toaster,or figure out why an item isn’t working.

“In my day-job I’m often on my computer and on the train so I enjoy doing something tangible and hands-on when volunteering at the weekend.”

“You meet other people in the community and it helps you feel part of that community. Plus I’m really into the idea of encouraging people to fix things.”

“It’s a good way to socialise and gives me a reason to get up and out of the house. It keeps you mentally fit.”  

Caroline

“I like how pleased people are from getting their things mended and also because it’s so sociable.”

Dick

“I like how sociable it is and also the challenge of fixing things. You’re learning all the time”
