Blue Badge scheme

About the Blue Badge scheme

Due to Covid-19, we are unable to offer face-to-face appointments or assessments and there is limited ability to handle telephone enquiries.

Our online and email service is currently unaffected.

The Blue Badge scheme helps people with an ongoing substantial disability which causes them to:

  • be unable to walk
  • experience very considerable difficulty whilst walking, which may include psychological distress
  • be at risk of serious harm or pose a risk to other people whilst walking

You can apply for yourself, someone else or an organisation.

The Blue Badge is issued to a person, not a vehicle. The badge holder must be in the vehicle when it is being used unless they are being picked up or dropped off.
