Front of House Charter for Change

We are committed to the inclusive and professional treatment of front-of-house workers, and we believe that front-of-house roles are a profession and career pathway. The Front-of-House Charter for Change outlines the ways in which organisations can recognise, include, and develop front-of-house colleagues. In this session we will explore what the Charter means for you, your organisation, and the sector.
