Would blue badge and ESA awards be of any help with my recent PIP application?

Would a blue badge award without assessment (just sent in many specialist reports) and support group  NS ESA be of any help with my recent PIP application.
I was awarded the badge online and no walking assessment done last September as I really could not face the disappointment of a failed PIP application as in 2015 I was only awarded 6 points  and gave up.

    Hi there and welcome to the community 

    A blue badge application won't get you pip or the esa support group 

    They are different benefits with different criteria 

    But there would be no harm in sending them in as evidence

    As Jane rightly says ESA and PIP are completely different benefits, and I doubt that either a blue badge award or ESA award would be of much value.
    I will now only offer benefits advice on PIP, and specific benefits advice for other people with Epilepsy.

    Hi Tori.
    I did send off the PIP form last Tuesday but I also sent the Blue Badge award, ESA Support group award notice and another specialist pain clinic report as extra evidence just this morning.
    I thought to myself what have I got to lose.
