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 through creating and delivering programmes on domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships to schools and colleges.
In addition, it funds hairdressing training for young people who may not otherwise have the funds to study – something Hollie was talented at and passionate about.
The ultimate 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.
Helping Talented Young People
We work alongside Gloucestershire College to support students that face many different challenges.
Delivering Healthy Relationship Education
We help educate young people about the importance of healthy relationships and to identify signs of potential abuse.
Raising Awareness of Stalking
Stalking is one of the most frequently experienced forms of abuse; abuse that can destroy the lives of its victims.
Tackiling Knife Crime & Anti Social Behaviour
The Trust has funded several initiatives delivering workshops in schools and other youth-related organisations.
