Join the repair teams

Our friendly teams of sewing, furniture and electrical repairers are always welcoming to new members.

We share skills with each other so you don’t need to be an expert, just able to do the basics and be keen. When there aren’t repairs to be done, volunteers can work on their own projects, help each other or just have a chat.

There is always a coordinator at Reyt Repair. They are responsible for welcoming people, entering details into the computer, taking payments, ordering parts etc. They also deal with difficult decisions and situations of all kinds. Although the coordinator takes all the responsibility, we make decisions by rough consensus so everyone’s input is welcomed and incorporated.

Repairs are planned by experienced repairers – we won’t ask you to do things beyond your abilities. When everyone is happy that we have a good plan, then volunteers will start working on the item. It’s quite common for plans to change as the repair progresses, but it’s important when this happens that we check with each other that the new repair plan is appropriate.

We offer all volunteers travel expenses, endless cups of tea and coffee and occasional cake!
