Hollie Guard is a next generation smartphone app that provides enhanced levels of protection.

The Hollie Gazzard Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner in Gloucester. 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.

Hollie Guard has you covered, whether you’re working alone, travelling to an unknown area or simply commuting around town.

With Hollie Guard, you can set extra levels of protection from right inside the App.

The idea of Deterrent mode is to make it clear to anyone in your surrounding area that an alert has been raised and to reduce the risk of an attack. The phone will display an obvious red alert screen capturing your GPS location, as well as audio/video footage that may be used to assess danger and collate evidence.

With a second shake of the phone it will generate a high-pitched alarm and a flashing light to attract help.

Alternately, Stealth Mode allows you to raise an alert silently while displaying a default home screen that would look inconspicuous to the attacker, thereby giving the impression that no alarm has been triggered.

This feature is useful in certain situations in which raising an alert could increase the risk of harm if the assailant becomes aware that an alert has been triggered.

You can download the app by visiting the App Store on your smart phone.
