Nick Gazzard, chairman of the Hollie Gazzard Trust, visited the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester to talk to business students about the issues of domestic abuse at work.

The talk was an adaptation of Nick’s ‘Working Without Fear’ programme that he runs through his own consultancy.

Nick said: “It was great to be able to get the message over to young people who will be running large companies in the future or maybe even their own.

“I was able to share with them some scary statistics including a third of all domestic abuse homicides take place at work and 50 per cent of stalking victims have now curtailed or stopped work all together”.

“It is important that we get the message across that it is a serious issue and affects not only the victim but all around.”

“This is particularly prevalent amongst 16 to 24-year-olds who are three times more likely to be victims than any other sector of the population”.
