The Daniel Baird Foundation

“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.

Our charity aims to raise awareness of 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.”

How we have helped

In December 2023, we raised money at our Billericay Christmas Market to provide the community with a publicly accessible bleeding control pack from The Daniel Baird Foundation. This has now been installed in the phone box outside our Billericay office, which also has a defibrillator in it. Thank you to Billericay Street Pastors for allowing us to put this kit in their phone box.
