Blue Badges for organisations

Alert

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 and 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.

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 5 people – it may be better for them to get individual blue badges, which can be used when they travel with your organisation.

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

Before you can apply for a 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.

You can pay online, or make debit or credit card payments by calling Waltham Forest Direct on 020 8496 3000.
