Consultation on eligibility for Blue Badge scheme

The Government are proposing to change the eligibility criteria for the Blue Badge scheme to include people with non-physical conditions.  The government believes that the Blue Badge scheme should not discriminate in principle between physical and non-physical disabilities.

This is part of the government’s objective to ensure that those people with the greatest need have access to badges, whilst ensuring the scheme remains sustainable.
