What we're about

Restarters are people who like helping other learn how to fix broken electronics and electricals - anything with a battery or a plug - with a few exceptions for safety, like microwaves.

Restarters have diverse skills. Some help with basic electrical fixing involving changing fuses and plugs. Others deal with software issues on laptops and mobiles. What unites Restarters is the love of a repair challenge and their collaborative approach.

Volunteer with us to make a difference, help empower people by teaching repair, and reduce e-waste. To get started come to one of our Volunteer Welcome Sessions which happen every few months and are all posted here on Meetup. You can read and sign up to our Safety Guidelines (https://therestartproject.org/pre-register/) prior to a Welcome Session, or during one.

👩🏾‍🔧We have a dedicated Meetup to create space for women and non-binary people (https://www.meetup.com/Women-repairing-electronics-Rosie-the-Restarter/) to share skills and gain confidence in repair. 👩🏾‍🔧

The Restart Project promotes community self-repair events for Restarters called "Restart Parties" in greater Camden and Brixton. In other communities in London, other organisations host - we will indicate the hosts for events.

Please SIGN UP for our monthly newsletter (https://therestartproject.org/#signup_target), with tips, inspiration and news.

Please note that children are more than welcome at Restart Parties, but only when accompanied by their guardians.

If you would like to reach out to more people by hosting your own Restart Party, write us at community@therestartproject.org
