About the Blue Badge scheme

If you have a disability or health condition, a Blue Badge will help you park close to your destination. If you’re eligible, you can apply whether you travel as a passenger or a driver. 

You can apply for a Blue Badge: 

  • for yourself 
  • on behalf of someone else 
  • for an organisation that transports people who need a Blue Badge 

If you have a Blue Badge, you can apply for a resident Blue Badge holder permit.  



Check GOV.UK to see if you can apply as an individual.
