Greater Surrey Repair Café Network



Repair cafés were founded in the Netherlands in 2009. There are now nearly 3000 repair cafes in the world and an estimated 250-300 in the UK. Since CV19, a growing number of new repair cafes have been launched. Farnham Repair Café was launched in 2015 and became the UK’s first repair café charity in 2017. Since launch a series of people from the UK and other countries involved in or considering the setting-up of repair cafes have visited FRC to see how it organises it activities and sessions. As a result, FRC recognised that there was an need to offer a neutral platform to share knowledge and experience amongst more experienced repair cafés with start-up and early stage repair cafes. Greater Surrey Repair Café Network (GSRCN) was borne from this recognition and was set up in January 2023, facilitating 10 sessions during 2023
