    Welcome to the community @brenly :) Thank you for joining!

    Are you referencing the Disabled Persons Freedom Pass? If so, the London Councils website says the following:
    Apply for a Disabled Persons Freedom Pass

    If you believe you fulfil the eligible criteria and are entitled to a Disabled Persons Freedom Pass you need to contact your borough for an application form. You can find a list of boroughs, their websites and their telephone numbers at the bottom of this page.

    You will be asked to provide evidence of your eligibility and a colour passport sized photograph. Please refer to the borough's application form for guidance on what documents you must provide.

    Once your borough has assessed and confirmed your eligibility your Freedom Pass will go into production and will be posted to you by second class post.​

    Please do not visit London Councils offices, we are unable to assist with your Disabled Freedom Pass queries. Please contact your borough for advice choosing the appropriate number from the list below.

    I don't have any personal experience of applying for the Pass, but I hope one of our other members does. 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our housing, transport, and independent living category, and tweaked the title slightly, so that it'll be easier for other members to find.

    Hello and welcome to the community @brenly, I hope the above information has been helpful. I hadn't previously heard of the freedom pass, so it has been interesting to learn about that.
