Hackney Fixers - Welcome!

We had a lot of fun at our Restart Party on 11th June.  We also handed over some refurbished laptops to the school - thank so much to all our donors!  This year we've donated 19 laptops to schools and projects supporting refugees.

Our next Restart Party will be on 10th September.  Click this link to see more details (only active when bookings open)  You will need to book a free slot to get help from our volunteers with repairing your broken electricals and electronics.  You can also sign up for our mailing list to get news when bookings open.  We will also be accepting donations of laptops for school and community use. 

We are community partners to Library of Things, a lending library for things you can borrow, rather than buy.  The library is now open in Hackney Wick and Dalston.

What is Hackney Fixers?

We aim to promote electrical and electronic repair in Hackney as an alternative to growing mountains of waste and consumption.  We were inspired by and work with The Restart Project. We hold regular Restart Parties where volunteers empower people to fix their broken gadgets themselves, aiming to transfer skills and learn about how things are designed and made.

The Hackney Fixers organisers are James Diamond, Friederike Hanisch, Dave Lukes, Bridget Harvey and Kathryn Packer.
