The Blue Badge scheme is for people with severe mobility problems, and allows the holder to access parking closer to where they need to go. Although it is administered by Local Authorities, and must be applied for from them, those who:
- Have received an AFCS tariff 8 or higher; and
- Have sustained an injury that makes walking impossible or very considerably difficult
are eligible to apply for a Blue Badge.
From the 9th May 2011, any notifications for awards under AFCS, which meet the criteria, will include documentation which may be used in support of an application for a blue badge.
