    Hello @greenslade   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    I am one of the team of community champions.  We guide, advise and help new members who join the community.

    In response to your questions. We have information on PIP on our website.

    We can give you the number for an application form.

    0800 121 4433

    Please when the form comes read it carefully and if I can make a suggestion. If you have any one who is supporting you.  Health worker or support worker . They should be able to advise you.

    Website benefits find out more another link.

    Also look at CAB website has a guide to filling out the forms.

    I would draft your answers on pieces of paper.  Ring up CAB make an appointment they will help you fill it in. I have done this myself.

    Blue badges you need to fit the criteria. You will need to speak to your county council. For an application form.

    They will send you a form.  

    Please if you need to ask anything further please get in touch.

    Happy to be supportive.

    Who is the badge for? Yourself or another family member?

    I applied on behalf of my son who is a paraplegic. You can find more information here

    Hi @greenslade
                              Welcome to the community, thank you for joining us. In response to your question regarding a blue badge, I would either contact your local county council or go on their website to find an application form. Once you have filled to form in, your local council will assess your need for the badge and make a decision. Depending on the outcome, they may ask for a small fee if you receive the badge.  I hope that this helps and you are able to get this resolved. Please if there is anything else we can help you with, just ask. We are all here to support each other. Thank you.

    Hi @greenslade I'd also like to welcome you to the Scope community. I see you have already received some great advice.

    The information about PIP on Scope's website can be found by going right to the top of this page to 'Advice and support,' then 'Online advice and support,' you will then see 'Benefits' on the left-hand side, so then scroll down the right-hand side to the information on PIP.

    Might I ask what sort of help do you/a family member need with PIP? Is it how to apply for PIP, or completing the booklet that you would then receive? To know this would be helpful so you may receive additional help & advice from others here.
