We’ve added south London borough Lambeth to our Repair Directory, and we’re getting ready to add more in the coming year, together with our London community. We’ve also made a change to reliability criteria for businesses.
Our Repair Directory lists 100 businesses from 11 boroughs in North and East London. We share insights from our work so far, and ask your input to help develop it further
The patterns and trends in our repair data can give us powerful insights into the repair movement, and we now have over 6,000 device repairs captured in the Fixometer. We’ve learned how to query, clean, and we’ve made progress on standardising our data.
We had a huge year last year, thanks to a larger team and steady funding support and our core of dedicated volunteers in London. In 2018, we look to build on last year’s work and add a couple of small new exciting projects.
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.
