People with hidden disabilities to benefit from Blue Badges

Blue Badge scheme to be extended from Aug 2019 for hidden disabilities, including autism and mental health conditions

The new criteria will extend eligibility to people who:

  • cannot undertake a journey without there being a risk of serious harm to their health or safety or that of any other person (such as young children with autism)

  • cannot undertake a journey without it causing them very considerable psychological distress

  • have very considerable difficulty when walking (both the physical act and experience of walking)

The changes are part of the government’s drive for greater parity between physical and mental health conditions.
