Are there still be blue badges under personal independence payment (PIP)?

The Blue Badge scheme is operated by your local authority.

If you have been awarded PIP with at least 8 points from the Moving Around section then you will automatically qualify for a Blue Badge.  You will still need to apply to your local authority (see below) and you will need to provide proof of your award with your application.

Even if you have not been awarded enough points to qualify automatically for a Blue Badge you can still apply for one from your local authority. You will have to fill in a form giving details of the problems you have with walking.

You can complete the form on line at www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge or you can telephone your local authority and ask for a form.
