Apply for or renew a Blue Badge as an organisation

An organisation can apply for a Blue Badge if it cares for and transports people with disabilities, who qualify for an individual Blue Badge in their own right.

Examples of organisations that may be eligible include:

  • residential care homes
  • hospices
  • social services departments.

It’s unlikely that taxi, private hire or community transport operators would be eligible for an organisational Blue Badge. This is because they're rarely involved in the care of people with physical disabilities. If you're a taxi or private hire driver you can use the individual's Blue Badge when carrying that person as a passenger.

What you’ll need to apply

You’ll need to tell us:

  • about your organisation
  • how many qualifying disabled people are in your care
  • how many vehicles your organisation has for transporting the people in your care
  • the kind of journeys you provide transport for
  • how many badges you need.
