Warning: Non-affiliated websites charging assistance fees

Applicants should be aware that non-affiliated websites exist charging fees of up to £49 for “assistance” with the Blue Badge application process which can be done quite simply for no extra charge. We would recommend you avoid using these sites and contact the Council direct on the numbers below if you have any queries.

If you're a driver or a passenger and you have mobility issues, you may be eligible for a Blue Badge.
