    Who automatically qualifies for a Blue Badge
    Anyone over two years old automatically qualifies for a Blue Badge if they:
    are registered blind
    receive a War Pensioner’s Mobility supplement
    receive the higher rate of the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance
    have received a lump sum benefit from the Armed Forces and Reserve Forces Compensation Scheme (within tariff levels 1-8) and have been certified as having a permanent and substantial disability which causes inability to walk or very considerable difficulty in walking
    About the Blue Badge Scheme
    Other people who may qualify for a Blue Badge
    If you do not automatically qualify, you may need to be assessed by your local authority.
    Anyone over two years old may be eligible for a Blue Badge, if they either:
    have a permanent and substantial disability which means they cannot walk, or makes walking very difficult
    drive a motor vehicle regularly and have a severe disability in both arms, making it very difficult or impossible to operate parking meters
    Special rules for children under three years old
    If you’re a parent of a child who is younger than three years old, you may also apply for a Blue Badge. Your child must have a specific medical condition which means that they either:
    must always be accompanied by bulky medical equipment which is very difficult to carry around
    need to be kept near a vehicle at all times to get emergency treatment for a condition when necessary
    BLUE BADGE UK CRITERIA  is where I got this info.  You can even apply on line.
