Blue Badge scheme now available for people with Autism

A recent change to the Blue Badge scheme, published in June 2019 means that it’s now possible for people with “invisible disabilities” to apply for a Blue Badge, which includes Autism.

According to a recent article published by The Guardian, the Department for Transport has published new guidance which aims to make a difference to people’s lives which were previously not supported very well. However, the final decision still rests with local authorities.
