Community

The Restart community is made up of a whole range of people: trained Restarters who help people learn to fix their broken stuff at our Restart Parties, hosts and organizers, and everyone who comes along to take part.

There are many different ways you can get involved. Come along any time to a Restart Party near you and see how it all works, or have a look through our community blog for exciting announcements, opportunities and tips.

What do we care about? The results from our community survey.

Community survey: the results are in!

We recently surveyed the Restart community and those curious about getting involved. We wanted to take the pulse – hear what is working and what could be improved to help us shape a new online space for everyone. Thanks to 117 of you from 18 countries who took part. Here’s what you said
