Topic - Sponsored abseil - any ideas on legal requirements?

doc_h - on 26 Feb 2013
Some members of the Senior Management Team at a school where I used to work want to do a sponsored abseil for charity, probably off the roof of one of the school buildings.

I'm guessing that for elf and safety reasons the anchor setup and abseil management has to be done by somebody with paper qualifications and that my 30 odd years of Alpine and scotish winter experience counts for nowt. (Not that I'd be happy about insurance claims against me if somebody fell anyway!)

Can anyone advise on the correct protocol for this, what quals the 'responsible person' needs and who I might speak to? The school is way down south in the fens so not many professional guides about!
