What is a blue disabled badge, where can I get a new one?

The Blue Badge scheme is designed to help people with disability or health conditions park closer to their destinations.  Badges usually last up to 3 years.  

A badge can be applied for yourself or somebody else.  Organisations can apply for the badge if they transport people who need a blue badge.  See the government’s link at:
