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.
