Blue Badges for people with hidden disabilities

The Department for Transport has announced that people with hidden disabilities will be able to apply for Blue Badges. However, we haven’t received any guidance and the new criteria will not come into effect until 31 August 2019. We cannot accept applications yet, but we will update this page when we have more information.

If you suspect misuse or fraudulent use of a badge:

  • Contact the Blue Badge enforcement officer on 01323 466 508
  • Or email badgefraud@eastsussex.gov.uk with as much information as possible, including the serial number of the badge or just the first 6 digits of that number.

All allegations of misuse are taken seriously and will be thoroughly investigated. Your details will not be disclosed to anyone.

Please note that we would be unable to share information with you about any ongoing investigation.

Our enforcement officer is unable to answer any questions about Blue Badge applications. For advice, please see Blue Badge application process.

You must never display a photocopied badge.
