Blue badge assessment
My disabled son was awarded 4 points for moving around and 12 points for planning and following a journey PIP-higher mobility rate.I applied for a blue badge from my local council instead for the badge to be issued I was directed to the assessor for assessment. Please does anyone know if I can use the new legislation that about hidden disability instead to argue this? The new legislation states that "scored 10 points in the ‘planning and following journeys’ area of your PIP assessment automatically entitles you to a blue badge". My son has a permanent and substantial disability. Must I take him to the assessment?
