Applying on behalf of someone else

You can apply on behalf of a person with a disability if you are a parent or guardian of a child up to the age of 16 years or helping someone who has difficulty writing, for example, due to poor eyesight or poor coordination; however, all sections of the form should be completed with the name and details of the person who qualifies for the badge, not the person applying on their behalf.

If the application is for a child under the age of 12 years, the signature can be provided by their parent or guardian. In all other cases, the named applicant must sign the form and photographs.

If you are successful in obtaining a Blue Badge you will also be sent a letter advising that it cannot be displayed in a clear plastic pocket as this may cause damage to the badge and would require you to pay for a replacement.

If you still wish to display your badge and time clock together in a wallet, new specially designed wallets suitable for the new badges are available and can be obtained by contacting us on 0115 876 1966 where a small fee would be payable.

You should report the matter to the Police - Blue Badges are valuable in the wrong hands. They will supply a crime number or a lost property reference.

You will need to contact the Blue Badge team on 0115 876 1966 and report the incident to them. You will be asked to fill in a Badge Replacement Form that will be sent to you.

You can also report a missing badge online at Replace a lost, stolen or damaged Blue Badge - GOV.UK (

There will be an administration fee of £10.00 for any replacement badge.
