ABOUT US: 

We are community interest company (CIC) founded in Autumn 2021. 

 

West Central London Fixers bring together volunteer repairers and the community to fix their
electronics for free. The idea is to nurture repair culture in the community, rather than throwing
away electronics. Indeed e-waste has become a huge environmental problem. The events are
open to volunteer learner repairers so are educational as well. WCL Fixers currently organise
monthly free repair events at the Dalgarno Trust in North Kensington. The plan however is to
have three branches:

● WCL Fixers – North Kensington - from 13-NOV-2021
● WCL Fixers – Hammersmith - from September 2022
● WCL Fixers - Westminster - from April 2023

We are supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, are in talks with the
London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster Council. We work in
partnership with the umbrella organisation, The Restart Project.

 

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

We are environmentally motivated - the problem of exponentially growing electronic waste needs addressing. We wish to nuture repair culture in the community rather than throw away culture. e-Waste is our fastest growing waste and we do not know where most ends up. e-Waste, is the tip of the iceberg. Less than 18% is properly recycled and documented. We are also community focused and plan to eventually train people in IT technical skills.
