Support to get out and about
There are many different methods of support we provide which may help you to get out and about in your local area if you have difficulties getting out of the house, or have mobility issues.
If you are disabled, or have difficulties walking, blue badges (parking concessions for the disabled) are available on our main website. People with hidden disabilities , such as dementia or anxiety disorders, can also now access blue badge parking permits.
The motability scheme
The motability scheme enables disabled people to get mobile by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair.

More information on driving with medical conditions, such as visual impairments or physical disabilities can be found on the government's website.
