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. Due to the nature of non-visible (hidden) conditions, applications will be assessed by looking at an applicant’s needs. People applying for a Blue Badge under this new criteria will need to support the application with evidence of their condition from a professional treating them.
