Launching our Beta Repair Directory
To help reduce our barriers to repair, today we are launching the beta version of our Repair Directory, a tool allowing users to quickly search for businesses based on location and type of device.
Mapping commercial repair in three more London boroughs
Building on work in East London, the aim is to discover as many relevant businesses as possible in three North London boroughs, collect data on them, and then develop and apply criteria for reliable businesses.
