How to repair kitchen cupboard door

Opened a (lower) cupboard door yesterday and it fell off one set of hinges. It hadn't been sitting flush for a while and the screw was just turning in the wood without grip. Now both screws on the top hinge have worn the wood and can't be screwed in.
Glue? Or another solution?

Or I could call the Housing Association and get them to fix it?

I found a trick using glue and cocktail sticks to repair existing hole and re-screw into sticks. Is this my best option?

Try an epoxy putty - Unibond do them where you mix the two parts together and use the putty to plug the hole. B&Q sell them in the section with things like glue.

Wood filler would work too, just check it's one that can be screwed in to

Thanks for replies. My dad is home from holiday at weekend so I'll see if he has any if these things to fill with.
In fact, who am I kidding? I'll get him to fix it wink

Take off the door, turn it upside down, fix the hinge to the spare set of hinge-holes.
