Join a friendly group of volunteers who are all helping the planet and the community. We always need more help, so why not get in touch? We will almost certainly have a role for you! Our volunteers...
- 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, a HOW TO workshop or a pop-up event
In particular, we are currently looking for:
Shop staff and helpers
Description: Can you spend two or more hours a week in our NEW POP-UP SHOP in Bath city centre? We're looking for volunteers to help out at The Share and Repair Shop when it opens from mid-March. The shop will include a Library of Things that lends out the type of useful items people only need to use now and again (such as carpet cleaners, drills, baking items, etc). The role involves helping to organise the items; giving them out for borrowing; and checking them when returned?
Electrical and mechanical repairers
Description: Are you a dab hand with a screwdriver? Or a whizz with things that whirr? We are looking for volunteers who can fix things at our Repair Cafes across Bath and North East Somerset or help maintain the items we lend out from our Library of Things. If you'd like to know more, get in touch.
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.”
Front Desk Volunteer
“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.”
Sewing Repair Volunteer
“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.”
“I like how pleased people are from getting their things mended and also because it’s so sociable.”
“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.”
