Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge Scheme provides a range of parking concessions for people with severe mobility problems who have difficulty using public transport. The scheme operates throughout the UK. To apply for a Blue Badge you need to submit an application to your local council.

Parents of a child with a disability can apply for a badge:

  • If the child receives the higher rate of the mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance
  • For children under 3 years, you may apply for a badge if you need to carry bulky medical equipment around
