Support our work

The Restart Project is on a mission to fix our relationship with electronics, and make the electronics of the future fixable.


We hosted our first Restart Party in a north London pub in June 2012. Since then, together with people from Montreal to Leicester to Milan, our network has helped more than 50,000 people extend the life of their gadgets, preventing over 120,000 kg of unnecessary waste and 1,200 tonnes of CO2e. We’re a leading organisation in the campaign for a Right to Repair in the UK and in Europe.

In 2023, we launched the UK Repair and Reuse Declaration; we released a study on the huge potential to reuse products currently sent to recycling, coordinated the largest edition of International Repair Day to date, and focused on training young people at London’s Fixing Factories.

Your donations will help us to:

  • Inspire and educate

    We aim to provide budding repairers with the skills they need to fix confidently, and the materials to embed repair in schools. We also stimulate wider discussion about better, sustainable products with our podcast.

  • Change the system

    We are collecting data on barriers to repair with repair activists from around the world. And we use this evidence to push for longer-lasting products and our Right to Repair in future policy

  • Promote local action and connection

    We provoke people to think, talk, and get hands-on experience. In addition to enabling more communities to share repair skills, we want to stimulate local repair economies by mapping and linking with businesses.
