Closed petition Make people with Parkinson's Disease automatically eligible for Blue Badges

Every person who is diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease should be automatically entitled to a Blue Badge for parking, rather than their eligibility being decided by their local authority.

More details

Decisions about who whether someone with a disability receives a Blue Badge are made by local councils, making successful applications somewhat of a lottery for people with disabilities.

Parkinson's, especially Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (YOPD), affects many people of a working age. Access to a Blue Badge would help make getting to work easier for people living with YOPD, for whom the unpredictable manner of it's symptoms can make travel a very challenging aspect of maintaining a working lifestyle.
