Jodie Fraser, CEO and founder of Fraser Allen Estate Management has been appointed as Chair of Trustees of the Hollie Gazzard Trust.

Businesswoman Jodie has been a supporter of the trust and its founder Nick Gazzard for several years and was an early business adopter of the Hollie Guard app designed to protect people from harm. For her, this latest appointment is a natural progression.

“We are delighted that Jodie has joined us as chair of Trustees. As an entrepreneur, Jodie has a wealth of knowledge and experience in running successful businesses,” said Nick Gazzard.

“As a current Ambassador and active supporter of the Trust, we are pleased that she will be heading up our Board of Trustees and will help to continue to drive the trust forward enabling us to deliver the valuable work that we do.”

After 18 years working in the block and property management sector, in 2016 Jodie made a significant move into entrepreneurship and started Fraser Allen Estate Management. Jodie has led her company to success and expanded its operations to oversee residential blocks in various locations, including Bristol, Swindon, Cheltenham, London, and the Midlands. 

Often she has found herself – and members of her team – alone when visiting blocks to manage properties. She has been subject to abuse and threats on several occasions. When she met Nick Gazzard at an event, the Trust he created in memory of his daughter Hollie, resonated with Jodie.

“I realised that not only could I support Nick to help others in Hollie’s name but his work could help me in my day-to-day life and provide some support for my team members who are often lone workers when they are out and about.”

This year marks a decade since the murder of Hollie Gazzard by her former partner at her workplace in Gloucestershire.  

In the wake of this devastating loss, Hollie's family dedicated themselves to creating initiatives and resources aimed at supporting individuals facing domestic abuse. They also have committed to educating children and young people about fostering healthy relationships, especially within schools, colleges and universities. Their efforts have been channelled through the Hollie Gazzard Trust, which has successfully raised more than £2 million to date.

One of their projects was the development of the Hollie Guard App, which is a smartphone app which works just via a ‘shake’ and sends alerts if the user is late for an appointment. It will also automatically record conversations, send GPS coordinates and it has already saved lives. Only weeks ago it was used in a UK court case to convict an abuser.  

Jodie will work with Nick and the team around several big events this year including:

  • A walk for Hollie on 12 May 2024
  • The first Active Bystander Conference on 10 July 2024 
  • The Annual Dinner on 29 November 2024

The Hollie Gazzard Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to preventing domestic abuse and supporting young people. Established in memory of Hollie Gazzard, the Trust works tirelessly to raise awareness, provide education, and offer assistance to those affected by domestic abuse.
