Applying for a Blue Badge for your organisation
This form is intended for organisations involved in the
care of disabled people who are seeking a blue badge for a
vehicle/vehicles (e.g. minibus, or specially adapted commercial
vehicle) which is/are to be used to carry disabled people who would
themselves qualify for an individual blue badge.
An ‘organisation’ is defined in legislation as
meaning an organisation concerned with the care of disabled persons
to which a disabled person’s badge may be issued.
Organisational badges will therefore only be
issued to an organisation which:
- Cares for and transports disabled people who
would meet one or more of the eligibility criteria for a individual
blue badge; and
- Has a clear need for an organisational badge
rather than using the individual blue badges of people it is
Organisational badges should only be used when transporting
disabled people in their care who meet one or more of the
eligibility criteria for a badge – and must not be used for the
employee’s benefit when they are carrying out other business on
behalf of the organisation. It is unlikely that taxi or
private hire operators and community transport operators would be
eligible for an organisational blue badge as they are not usually
concerned with the care of disabled people who would meet one or
more of the eligibility criteria for a badge.
