The Manchester Declaration

In 2018, we convened 59 repair activists at Fixfest UK to debate and draft The Manchester Declaration. With this initiative we launched a platform to promote the Right to Repair in the UK, tackling the barriers experienced by citizens, community repair activists and independent repair businesses. The Declaration was signed by 75 community repair groups, 20 ally organisations and it was endorsed by 18 MPs and political leaders.

In 2023 we launched a new UK Repair and Reuse Declaration to coincide with International Repair Day. We’re encouraging members of the public to reach out to their MPs asking them to endorse it. This is just the beginning. To read it, or get involved, please visit the site
