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
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.
We’ve researched the changing landscape of the commercial repair sector in East London: some smaller businesses are finding it tough to compete with superstores and large manufacturers, and the next generation of younger repairers face an uncertain career path.
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.
