The Department for Transport (Dft) Blue Badge Scheme means that people with non-visible (hidden) disabilities may be eligible for a Blue Badge if they would experience ‘considerable difficulty whilst walking, including psychological distress, or be at risk of serious harm to themselves or others’. So, for example, this could mean some with Alzheimers, Dementia, Autism, Crohn’s disease could be eligible – even though they can physically walk. Applicants will need to submit ‘professional’ evidence to demonstrate how they meet the ‘hidden’ disability criteria.
The Surgery will not supply this evidence as it needs to come from the professional providing care for your condition. To read more about where you can obtain support for your application, please click here:
