Blue Badges

Who Can Get One

Service update: From 30 August 2019, the government has introduced new criteria for Blue Badge applications in England.

Applicants with non-visible (hidden) disabilities/conditions may now be eligible for a Blue Badge. Due to the nature of non-visible (hidden) conditions, applications will be assessed by looking at an individual applicant’s needs.

While the new criteria will give clear and consistent guidelines on Blue Badge eligibility for the whole of England, not everyone with non-visible disabilities will qualify for a badge


   You can check whether you are eligible for a Blue Badge in the first section of the online application form
