    Permanent disability

    Freedom Passes are issued in line with the central principle of the DDA definition. The types of disability that enable people to claim the statutory minimum are those which are permanent, or which have lasted at least 12 months and have a substantial effect on a person's ability to carry out normal day to day activities.
