A website set up by the family of Hollie Gazzard who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 2014.  Nick Gazzard (Hollie's dad) spoke at a Poole Safer Partnership conference on coercive behaviour in March 2017. Along with training about domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships in schools and colleges he has been instrumental in developing the Hollie Guard app (see below).  

Hollie Guard is a free app that turns your smartphone into a personal safety device. Visit to see how it works for children, teens and adults. It can be used by anyone including athletes, members of your neighbourhood, lone workers, support workers and stalking and domestic violence victims.
