Free Repair Surgery at The Edinburgh Remakery @ The Edinburgh Remakery | Scotland | United Kingdom

The Repair Surgery is a FREE weekly drop-in event that takes place at The Edinburgh Remakery every Thursday from 6pm to 8:30pm. The purpose of the Repair Surgery is to help people mend their belongings, primarily textiles (such as clothes) and IT equipment (such as laptops).

How does it work?

  • The Repair Surgery is a drop-in, which means you do not have to make an appointment, just come along with your item and our expert volunteers will help you from there!
  • We run on a first-come first-serve basis and we’re open to everyone, so if it is a busy evening you may have to wait a short while. We advise that you arrive before 8pm if you are bringing along any IT.
  • This is a free service but we wouldn’t be able to keep it running without donations. We ask that if possible, you donate
    ​whatever you can afford and feel is appropriate
    ​for the help you have received.
    ​All donations are gratefully received.
  • We love repeat customers, however we are limited for space and the Repair Surgery is not a weekly club, so please only come along if there are specific items you need help with.

What can we help with?

  • Our sewing tutors can help with repairs and minor alterations; such as replacing a button, sewing on a patch, mending a rip,
    ​and taking up trousers.
  • We have a small supply of replacement buckles, buttons, Velcro, darning wool, and zips, but cannot guarantee to have the right size, type and colour.
  • Our computer tutors can help with any kind of broken electronics including laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, printers, monitors, TVs e-readers, Macs, Iphones, Ipads, Ipods, and game consoles.
  • They cannot help you with electrical goods like irons, food processors, radios, hair straighteners etc.
  • We do not teach people how to use software (for example programmes like WordPress, Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc),
    ​and there is no public wi-fi available

Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty monthly meeting @ The Autonomous Centre Of Edinburgh
Nov 25 @ 7:00 pm
Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty monthly meeting @ The Autonomous Centre Of Edinburgh | Scotland | United Kingdom

Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty holds open organising meetings the last Monday of every month at 7pm at ACE, 17 West Montgomery Place EH7 5HA. All welcome.

ECAP organises to combat poverty on the principle of solidarity and self- activity in communities and workplaces, actively rejecting influence by any political parties. We work and fight alongside individuals facing poverty related problems and oppressive behaviour from the authorities. We also conduct wider campaigns on specific issues using the same principles of solidarity and self-activity. Our actions are practical examples of the differences we can make in our day-to-day lives by standing up for one another. But why does ECAP embrace self-activity and reject political parties?

Poverty is no natural disaster but a result of how people organise the world. ECAP considers poverty to be an inevitable part of an economic system based on exploitation and profit. The use of debt to generate profits gave this system a few more decades of supposed stability. But the current global crisis has burst that bubble and now standards of living for waged and unwaged are under attack as the true nature of an exploitative economy is again exposed.

Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty holds open organising meetings the last Monday of every month at 7pm at ACE, 17 West Montgomery Place EH7 5HA. All welcome.

ECAP organises to combat poverty on the principle of solidarity and self- activity in communities and workplaces, actively rejecting influence by any political parties. We work and fight alongside individuals facing poverty related problems and oppressive behaviour from the authorities. We also conduct wider campaigns on specific issues using the same principles of solidarity and self-activity. Our actions are practical examples of the differences we can make in our day-to-day lives by standing up for one another. But why does ECAP embrace self-activity and reject political parties?

Poverty is no natural disaster but a result of how people organise the world. ECAP considers poverty to be an inevitable part of an economic system based on exploitation and profit. The use of debt to generate profits gave this system a few more decades of supposed stability. But the current global crisis has burst that bubble and now standards of living for waged and unwaged are under attack as the true nature of an exploitative economy is again exposed.

Free Repair Surgery at The Edinburgh Remakery @ The Edinburgh Remakery

Free Repair Surgery at The Edinburgh Remakery @ The Edinburgh Remakery | Scotland | United Kingdom

The Repair Surgery is a FREE weekly drop-in event that takes place at The Edinburgh Remakery every Thursday from 6pm to 8:30pm. The purpose of the Repair Surgery is to help people mend their belongings, primarily textiles (such as clothes) and IT equipment (such as laptops).

How does it work?

  • The Repair Surgery is a drop-in, which means you do not have to make an appointment, just come along with your item and our expert volunteers will help you from there!
  • We run on a first-come first-serve basis and we’re open to everyone, so if it is a busy evening you may have to wait a short while. We advise that you arrive before 8pm if you are bringing along any IT.
  • This is a free service but we wouldn’t be able to keep it running without donations. We ask that if possible, you donate
    ​whatever you can afford and feel is appropriate
    ​for the help you have received.
    ​All donations are gratefully received.
  • We love repeat customers, however we are limited for space and the Repair Surgery is not a weekly club, so please only come along if there are specific items you need help with.

What can we help with?

  • Our sewing tutors can help with repairs and minor alterations; such as replacing a button, sewing on a patch, mending a rip,
    ​and taking up trousers.
  • We have a small supply of replacement buckles, buttons, Velcro, darning wool, and zips, but cannot guarantee to have the right size, type and colour.
  • Our computer tutors can help with any kind of broken electronics including laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, printers, monitors, TVs e-readers, Macs, Iphones, Ipads, Ipods, and game consoles.
  • They cannot help you with electrical goods like irons, food processors, radios, hair straighteners etc.
  • We do not teach people how to use software (for example programmes like WordPress, Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc),
    ​and there is no public wi-fi available
