How does a blue badge help?

Displaying the blue badge in your car helps you to park closer to your destination. Even if you don't have a car, you can use your blue badge in someone else's car when they drive you somewhere. Find out more about the Blue badge scheme from GOV.UK

Apply for a blue badge

You can apply for a Blue Badge through GOV.UK. There is a £10.00 charge, this is the only fee that will apply and will be refunded if you are not successful. Once you have submitted your application please pay via the GOV.UK website.

Alternatively, you can pay for your Blue Badge via telephone, please call 020 8770 5000 and select option 6 and then option 2.

Please allow 6 weeks for us to process your application. This could be longer if we require further information and may take up to 12 weeks to process.

When you make your online application for a 'non-visible' disability, you can download a proforma and have it completed by a health/and social care professional to support your application and should be submitted along with the supporting evidence you will need to provide.  If requesting your GP to complete the proforma, please note that the proforma is not the only information you will need and that it is not part of the of the core function of GPs to complete it, so they may charge you for this. The practice will be able to provide a printout of your medical history which can be used alongside the proforma (or on its own) to support your application for an assessment

If you need support to complete your application online,  please contact us and a member of the team will assist. You can contact us by emailing or by phoning 0208 770 4578.

If you are successful, your blue badge will be posted directly to you.
