Volunteering

Have you seen our new shop in the centre of Bath? We have now re-opened The Share and Repair Shop at 8, Broad Street (BA1 5LJ) where our Library of Things is now located.

The Library of Things lends out the type of useful items people only need to use now and again (such as carpet cleaners, drills, baking items, etc).

Can you help out in the shop?

We need people to organise items, deal with visitors (only two allowed in at one time - here's how we're keeping everyone safe), and check and clean items when returned.

Join a friendly group of volunteers who are all helping the planet and the community.

Our Repair Cafes are on hold for now, but we typically have space for new volunteers to:

  • Repair and fix electricals, clothes, homewares
  • Provide admin support
  • Help us with our website and communications
  • Project manage a Repair Café, a HOW TO workshop or a pop-up event 

If you'd like to get involved and help build a resilient community in Bath and North East Somerset, get in touch. We'd love to have you.

Why volunteer?

We’re a friendly community group. Here’s what our volunteers say...

“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"

“It’s interesting because everything is a bit different. You can lend your logic to damaged items.”
