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.
