The Outer Edge is run by Husband and Wife, JP and Karen Edgington, alongside a carefully selected team of freelance staff.

JP has been involved in climbing and mountaineering for over 25 years and is a highly qualified outdoor instructor. JP has a well earned reputation for efficiency, organisation and risk management; he provides technical consultancy services to climbing walls and outdoor centres and has consulted on the risk management and logistical planning of mass participation and bold and unusual charity events.

Karen has worked in fundraising for 15 years. She won IOF Professional Fundraiser of the Year 2006 and worked most recently as Head of Fundraising at Charlton Farm for Children’s Hospice South West before joining JP at The Outer Edge.  Karen has a broad experience of fundraising at a management and operational level as well as leading on corporate and events strategy.

Over the years we've earned a reputation for delivering highly organised events with exceptional levels of safety whilst retaining the true adventurous nature of the activity.  We've often been able to provide events at venues for the 1st time largely due to our approach to working with venue owners/stakeholders.

We're not just about charity events -      From film and theatre rigging to publicity stunts, rock climbing and mountaineering instruction to technical advisory services for climbing walls and outdoor centres.  All adding to our experience in risk management and event production.
