    Hello @Shazzron

    Thanks for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, blue badges are not my area of expertise and I am hoping someone with more knowledge in this area can respond to you soon with appropriate guidance. However, in the meantime, I wanted to signpost you to the Government's website which outlines eligibility criteria for blue badges because it is more comprehensive than I ever could be! If you are interested, you can find it at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/blue-badge-can-i-get-one. I hope this helps but as always, if you have any more questions or need any further support, please do not hesitate to reach out to us again  :)

    I don’t believe LCWRA entities you automatically, I think each council deal with blue badges differently.

    Blue badge criteria is decided by local councils.  LWCRA isn't relevant but if you get high rate PIP mobility on moving around then you'll generally be automatically entitled to the blue badge.  If not, you can still apply for a badge, stating your difficulties and why the badge would help.  You can apply for the badge online easily enough.

    You can apply usually on your council website or on gov website 

    However lcwra has nothing to do with blue badge.  Lcwra is a work capability assessment and j6st means you have been found unfit for work..
    Pip enhanced mobility for moving around is the normal requirement but check your local council criteria

    Check the criteria of your local Authority here. https://www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge If you claim the mobility part of PIP and scored at least 8 points (standard rate) in the "moving around" part then you will automatically qualify.
    High rate mobility DLA also automatically qualifies you.
