A new survey has been launched into Londoner’s experiences and attitudes to the repair of small electrical items.

Imperial College London, the London Office of Technology and Innovation and ReLondon have launched the short survey to better understand people’s experiences of a broken or malfunctioning small household electrical or electronic products.  Barnet Council is supporting the survey as part of its aspiration to become a net zero borough.

From mobile phones and computer accessories to vacuum cleaners and toasters, those over the age of 18 are invited to share their experiences in a short, anonymous, online survey. Once completed, participants are invited to enter a raffle to win one of four £25 IKEA vouchers.

The survey is available here:
