Customer Service Policy – The Foundry
(Social Justice and Human Rights Centre)
Service Promise

The Foundry aims to provide the highest standard of service to its customers. We will set clear standards of service and will review these regularly to ensure they are relevant and effective.

We expect all staff to set very high standards of behaviour based on our aim and to provide service in a courteous, timely and helpful manner. Staff will be positively encouraged to offer suggestions for improvement in customer service and The Foundry will strive to implement these where reasonably possible. Staff will be trained to enable them to deliver the highest possible customer service.

Where customers have specific needs, we will endeavour to provide our service in a way that accommodates these without reducing the customer service standards they have a right to expect.

Our bookings team will deal with your booking in a professional, efficient and friendly manner, responding to any correspondence within 2 working days. We will strive to ensure that your expectations are met, if not exceeded, at every opportunity.

All sales staff are trained in how to manage the bookings process at The Foundry and procedures are in place to ensure the customer receives clear and complete information about our space and services.

Upon arrival at the venue, our reception team will welcome you and your guests to The Foundry and provide directions to your specified meeting room or event space. Throughout the day, Bookings, Reception and Facilities teams will be available to assist with any last-minute changes, and to ensure the smooth running of your event. Our Receptionist will provide the key sign in paper and inform of all fire, and health and safety regulations prior to the start of your event.

The booked meeting room(s) and/or event space(s) will be ready at the time agreed prior to the event and set up to your specifications; with any audio-visual equipment supplied by The Foundry, tested in advance.
