Apply for an organisational blue badge, or renew your existing organisational blue badge (if it is due to expire in the next eight weeks), using our online 'Apply for an organisational blue badge' form.
You will be asked for a £10 fee (per badge) upon submission of your online application. You will need to upload a letterheaded document displaying your organisation’s logo and company details.
An organisational Blue Badge will only be issued to organisations that both care for and transport disabled people who would themselves be eligible for an individual Blue Badge under one or more of these categories-
- children aged two or under with medical needs
- people aged three or over who are automatically eligible
- people aged three or over who may be eligible under certain criteria.
The badge can only be used and displayed when transporting any of these qualifying people.
Following application, we will decide if the organisation applying has a clear need for a blue badge. Common examples of organisations that may be eligible include residential care homes, hospices or local authority social services department.
Organisational Blue Badges are issued to individual sites and cannot be shared across multiple sites owned by the organisation.
We aim to process your request within 10 working days of receiving your completed application
If we refuse your application we will email you to tell you the reason you are not eligible and we will arrange to refund the administration fee.
