Blue Badge Scheme Eligibility of Younger People

06 June 2011

Information about blue badge scheme for young people.

The Department for Regional Development undertook a survey in 2010 to help identify the Section 75 profile of Blue Badge users. The results of this survey indicate that younger people may be under-represented in enrolment in the Blue Badge Scheme, when compared to the number of young people in Northern Ireland as a whole who consider themselves to have a disability.

The Department for Regional Development would like to increase awareness of the Blue Badge Scheme and its benefits for younger people with a disability.

The Department's guide on the Blue Badge Scheme for first-time applicants can be obtained via this link: http://www.roadsni.gov.uk/booklet_june07_.pdf.  Alternatively additional copies are available on request, and application forms can be obtained from:
