Daniel Baird Aged 26

The Daniel Baird Foundation Charity has been set up after our brother and son Daniel Baird of just 26 years of age was fatally stabbed in the early hours of 8th July 2017, outside The Forge Tavern, Digbeth in Birmingham following a night out with friends. There was no first aid or bleeding control kit available. Dan died shortly after arriving at hospital due to catastrophic bleeding.

Dan was out with his friends having a good time. His life should not have ended in this tragic way. Had there been a public accessible bleeding control pack available Dan may still be with us. We believe that having publicly accessible bleeding control packs in all major shopping centers, pubs/clubs, public transport stations, all public buildings is a priority given the current risk from extremists, terrorists and the increasing rise in knife and violent crime. Our aim is to reduce and stop knife crime as no family should have to feel this pain.

Our charity aims to raise awareness of knife and violent crime and the importance of having publicly accessible bleeding control packs available. We are working closely with local government organisations, community groups and business organisations to get these vital bleed control kits into as many venues as possible. We will also campaign for First Aid Training to incorporate catastrophic bleeding control as a mandatory element of the training. Additionally, we will continue to campaign to have Advanced First Aid in the curriculum of all educational establishments.
