Blue Badges extended to people with non- visible (hidden) conditions

Blue Badges extended to people with non- visible (hidden) conditions The government’s Blue Badge scheme is being extended to include people who have non-visible (hidden) conditions, making journeys more accessible for them, from Friday 30 August. For drivers or passengers with conditions such as dementia, anxiety disorders or autism the anticipation of travel difficulties such as finding a parking space can build on top of the stress of the journey itself.
