Hollie Guard: An App To Help You Help Young People and Vulnerable Adults Stay Safe.

In 2014 Hollie was murdered in Gloucester by her ex-partner Asher Maslin (who had been stalking her during an abusive relationship); leading to the establishment of the Hollie Gazzard Trust. The Trust actively works to reduce domestic violence through programmes on domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships to schools and colleges. In 2015, the Trust launched Hollie Guard, their free app which essentially transforms your smartphone into an advanced personal safety device. All you need to do is shake your phone or tap the screen and you generate an alert, which automatically sends your location and audio/video evidence to your emergency contacts.
