Applying on behalf of an organisation

Some organisations may be eligible if they care for and transport disabled people, who themselves meet the eligibility criteria for a badge. If you are looking to make an application as an organisation please complete the above process or email us for an application form.

Applying on behalf of a terminally ill patient

GPs, Consultants and specialist nurses (e.g. palliative care) can submit a fast-track application on behalf of a terminally ill patient with a prognosis of 12 months or less. 

Fast-track applications don't require a photo or payment. Once we receive the completed form from the healthcare professional, the badge will be sent to the patient's home address within 15 working days.


If you have any queries or need assistance, please contact us.
