Share & Repair Network Membership

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Share and Repair Network!
Please take a couple of minutes to answer the following questions and someone will be in touch.

Are you running or do you plan to run a Sharing Library? *

For the purposes of the network a “sharing library” is defined as a project that allows customers to rent or borrow items (tools for example), equipment and "how-to" instructional materials. It could operate as a rental shop with borrowing charges or membership fees, or it could operate as a free loan model as a form of community sharing.

Are you running or do you plan to run a Repair Project? *

A “repair project” is defined as one through which the public can get help and support to repair broken household items. They can be in-person or virtual events. Items to fix might include clothes, small electricals, IT equipment, furniture, toys or bikes. Out-of-scope for this network are reuse projects that repair donated items for onward sale or donation.

Is your organisation currently a member of Circular Communities Scotland? *
Are you a non-profit organisation? E.g. a SCIO or a CIC

If NO: we'll be in touch to discuss membership with you. In the meantime, you can find out more about the excellent benefits it can bring your organisation. Don't forget it's free for any organisations with an annual turnover of less than £100k.

Please give us the contact details of the main contact who will be representing your organisation in the network.

Would you like to receive e-mails about any updates we think are likely to be of interest? *
