A badge may be issued to organisations that care for and transport disabled people who would meet the eligibility criteria for a blue badge if they applied individually.
Where relatively few people meet the eligibility criteria for a Blue Badge in the organisation, it would be preferable for the disabled people themselves to apply for a badge, rather than have one issued to an organisation.
Organisational badges will therefore only be issued to an organisation which both:
- cares for and transports disabled people who would meet one or more of the eligibility criteria for an individual Blue Badge
- has a clear need for an organisational badge rather than using the personal Blue Badges of people it is transporting.
In all circumstances, badges will be supplied to organisations or departments (for example, a social services department) rather than to individual staff members.
All employees of the organisation who will be using the badge should be reminded that they must only use the badge for the purposes of transporting disabled people in their care who meet one or more of the eligibility criteria for a badge. If they use the badge to take advantage of the concessions when there are no passengers in the vehicle who are eligible for a badge they will face a fine of up to £1,000.
