Volunteer at the Moruya Repair Cafe

The Southcoast Health and Sustainability Alliance (SHASA) and the Eurobodalla Shire Council have collaborated to set up a Repair Cafe for the residents of the Eurobodalla. It is located in the Red Door Hall, Page Street, Moruya will operates from 10am-2pm on Fridays.

Members of the community are able to bring in items for repair. There will be a three step process of assessment

· Step 1 - assess whether an item is repairable;

· Step 2 - identify whether the item can be repaired by the Repair Café

· Step 3 –advise of alternative local repair options if the Repair Café is unable to repair the item

The Moruya Repair Café also provides an opportunity for members of the community to drop in and network with other people, thereby enhancing general well-being and promoting recovery in the wake of the recent bushfires and Covid-19 pandemic.

The Repair Cafe needs volunteers to:

· welcome those seeking help to fix items and fill in a register with details about the repairs

· undertake, or teach others to undertake, sewing repairs (using a machine or by hand)

· inspect and clean vacuum cleaners or other appliances that may not have not been maintained and do not work properly

· fix electrical goods (one SHASA member is undertaking tag and test training and SHASA will cover the cost of other volunteers to do this training)

· organise tea and coffee and/or bake biscuits and cakes for the Repair Café

· help with setting up and packing away the Repair Café each week

· promote the Repair Café by putting up posters, setting up a social media site etc.
