Blue Badge

Hi quick question… What are the rules for getting a blue badge in Scotland if you have Ms. I have RRMS and mobility is not always a major issue so if it is via assessment I am assuming I will not qualify, but there are other times it might be beneficial.

Morning ferryms.
I literally have just been in contact with my Local County Council to tell them about change of address & renewal of my Blue Badge……I was informed that they would request information & data from my old Council & update their records & also informed me that they would be in touch when they had those records & of their decision!!…..which kind of makes you think as the MonSter we have been landed with (personally RRMS since 2011 & like you lots of mobility at time…….but now……oh my), there are not many advantages, if any, we can get from it…..and as you say one is the benefits is the Blue Badge.

Not sure of the rules in Scotland, (if it is via assessment…….worst day scenario) the rules seemed to have changed a bit down here, first time in 2014 & if I remember, was info between GP, Specialists & Blue Badge came in the post, but can imagine it will be a similar process, but personally cannot see why your not entitled as we know this can be different for everyone, but it can be a de-generative condition & hopefully that is recognised by your Local Council. Hopefully there are more informed folk out there who know more than I do….

All the best with things & good luck. J
