Blue Badges for organisations

Sub heading

Disabled badge holder

 

The Blue Badge Scheme gives people with a disability access to a wide range of free parking spaces. Organisations which care for, and transport, people with a disability can also apply for a Blue Badge.

We are authorised to assess people to see if they can have a Blue Badge. Please follow this link if you would like to apply for a badge as an individual, or want to read more information about the scheme and how to apply.

How can organisations apply for a Blue Badge?

Organisations who care for people with disabilities may also apply for a badge. Your organisation must be able to prove that they provide transport for a minimum of three residents who would qualify for a badge in their own right. This can be done using one or more from the following list of evidence:
  • a copy of the individual’s benefit entitlement (must be Disability Living Allowance at the Higher Rate for Mobility, or equivalent in Personal Independence Payment)
  • a copy of the individual’s own Blue Badge (if this has already been awarded to them by Luton Borough Council)
  • evidence from a medical professional confirming the individual’s inability or very considerable difficulty in walking. This evidence will be assessed in compliance with the Department for Transport guidance, and acceptability depends on the strength of the written statements
In addition, your organisation will need to license the vehicle in the DVP taxation class or you will need to make a signed declaration on your organisation’s letter-headed paper. The declaration for a badge application needs to say that the organisation is concerned with the care of people with a disability (who would meet one or more of the eligibility criteria prescribed in the regulations that govern the Blue Badge scheme) and that you will be using the vehicle solely for the purpose of transporting those people. This should be signed by a Board Member or Trustee of the organisation.

Blue Badge charges

The charge for a Blue Badge is £10 and we will need your organisation’s logo. Please do not send cash with your application, cheques and postal orders made payable to Luton Borough Council are acceptable and the payment will only be taken if your application is successful.  Please follow this link to make an application for your organisation.
