Apply for a Blue Badge for organisations


Organisations that transport people with severe mobility problems may be able to get a Blue Badge to help them park close to their destination.

Badges are given to organisations rather than to individual staff members. The badge can only be used when the disabled clients are present. It’s a criminal offence to use a Blue Badge without the disabled person being present.

Download Can I get a Blue Badge (PDF 775KB) from GOV.UK, to find out more about the terms of the scheme.

To be eligible, the organisation must:

  • be responsible for the care and transportation of disabled people
  • be transporting several disabled people who would individually qualify for a Blue Badge

If you have fewer than five people it may be better for them to get individual Blue Badges. These can be used when they travel with your organisation.

The vehicle must be registered at the organisation’s address and be licensed under the Disabled Passenger Vehicle (DPV) Taxation Class.

Step 1: Pay for your Blue Badge

Before you can apply for a new Blue Badge you’ll need to pay a £10 administration fee. If your application is unsuccessful, we’ll refund the fee by the method you paid with. 

There is no charge for replacement badges if the original card has been stolen or is faded. You’ll need to give us either a copy of the crime report which includes the crime reference number, or return the faded badge.
