Hollie Gazzard Trust

I’m Richard Gray, Business Partnerships lead for the Hollie Gazzard Trust. The Hollie Gazzard Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner. Set up by parents Nick and Mandy, along with sister Chloe, the charity helps reduce domestic violence by creating and delivering programmes on domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships to all areas of our community.

The aim of the Trust is to positively change the lives of young people through partnerships in communities, as well as working alongside other charities and professional agencies.

A Gloucestershire-based charity with nationwide reach aiming to prevent other victims and families from having to go through what Hollie and her family had to go through.

Following Hollie’s horrific murder, the family wanted something positive to come out of the loss and set up the Trust not only to help other victims but to raise funds to support young people. Hollie had suffered from domestic abuse, violence and stalking in the time leading up to her death and tackling these issues is at the forefront of the work we do. The charity has made it a key aim to develop programmes and tools to help those experiencing domestic abuse and to promote healthy relationships, particularly by providing education in schools and colleges.  

The year 2024 marks the 10th anniversary of the Hollie Gazzard Trust. Over the past decade, the Trust has blossomed into a powerful force for positive change. Through a series of inspiring and innovative fundraising events throughout this important year, we aim to raise the bar higher to further amplify the Hollie Gazzard Trust’s mission.

The aim of the Hollie Gazzard Trust is simple – we work to save lives by building individual and community resilience to domestic abuse. We work towards this in three ways:

– The first is by raising awareness. We do this in various ways; from helping young people understand the dangers of unhealthy relationships and what this can lead to, using Hollie’s tragedy as an example. Keeping our subscribers informed on the issues around domestic abuse and stalking via our monthly Hollie Gazzette and social media platforms. We also host various fundraising events throughout the year, such as our Golf Day, Annual Dinner and Walk4Hollie.

– Secondly, we help people create positive, happy and safe relationships, free from abuse by providing education and guidance in schools, workplaces and other organisations. The Trust offers a series of workshops designed specifically to benefit both staff and students at schools and colleges. We have a range of sessions available covering domestic abuse, stalking, coercive control, sexual harassment, knife crime and Hollie Guard, so please get in touch if you would like this training in your organisation.

– Thirdly, we hope to prevent other people from going through what Hollie did before her death. We offer our free personal safety app, Hollie Guard in the hope this will help individuals experiencing domestic abuse and stalking to stay safe. www.hollieguard.com
