Help with parking

The Blue Badge scheme provides parking concessions for disabled people travelling either as drivers or passengers.

This means you can park closer to where you need to go. You'll be exempt from certain parking restrictions, like being allowed to park:

  • free at on-street parking meters and in Pay and Display bays
  • up to 3 hours on single and double yellow lines

Help to buy a car

The Motability Scheme can help you with leasing or buying a car, powered wheelchair or scooter – to be used by you or someone caring for you.

You can get this if you're on the higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance or War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement.


Taxi Card schemes offer reduced fare taxi and train travel to those who cannot use buses because of severe physical disability or infirmity.

Contact your to see if there's a Taxi Card scheme in your area and if you're eligible.
