The Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner. HGT 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 – Hollie was passionate about hairdressing and HGT enables others to follow their dream.

The Hollie Gazzard Trust also campaigns to reduce anti-social behaviour and knife crime.

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.

HGT was set up by Hollie’s parents, Nick and Mandy, and her sister Chloe.

Hollie's Quotes

 

Holz Wall

” Have hope be strong laugh loud and play hard. Live in the moment, smile often, dream big. Remember you are loved and never ever give up. ”

Judgement

” Don’t judge me by my past. I don’t live there any more… ”

Tattoo

” Time is precious, life is a mystery. ”

'The Gym'

” Someone should open a bar called ‘The Gym.’ Then, I could be one of those annoying people on Facebook that brags about going there everyday. ”

Arrow

” An arrow can only be shot by pulling it back. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming. ”

Storms

” Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains. ”

Everyday

” Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every day is a fresh start. Each day is a new beginning. Every morning we wake up is the first day of our new life. ”

Eyes Open

” Sometimes, opening your eyes may be the most painful thing you ever have to do. ”

Fair

” If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him. ”

Susan Sontag

” I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. ”

Hollie

” You spend too much time worrying what other people think of you… A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinion of a sheep. ”

Raising Awareness of Stalking

Stalking is one of the most frequently experienced forms of abuse; abuse that can destroy the lives of its victims.

Day 2 - Raising awareness of Economic Abuse.

Please share, this might just help someone. 🙏

If someone you know was being told they couldn't go to work or college; they shouldn't spend money on essentials like clothes and food; and their finances were being dictated by their partner - would you know what to do?

Economic abuse isn't just about money, but is a form of coercive control which restricts victims from accessing support. Individual incidents of control can sometimes seem innocent, but are often part of a wider cycle of abuse.

Economic abuse is a crime and should be reported.

If you're worried about someone you know, here is some information:

👉 Speak to GDASS
👉 Read our friends and family pack here: holliegazzard.org/friends-and-family-advice/
👉 There's also more helpful information here: www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/articles/protecting-against-financial-abuse

"You shouldn't go back to work, I much prefer knowing you're safe"

"I don't trust your friends to look after you, maybe you should stay home tonight?"

"You look great in what you have, we don't need to buy you any new clothes."

"I checked your bank account, why did you go here?"

Sound familiar?

You could be the victim of economic abuse.

It's not just about controlling money, it's about limiting your choices so you can't access support, safety, or fulfill your basic needs. It's abuse, and it's a crime.
