Blue Badges

Crohn's or Colitis

 

Help lobby the Department for Transport on Blue Badges

Government has announced welcome changes to the Blue Badge criteria in England* which will take better account of the needs of those with hidden disabilities.  

However, this reform has a limited definition of hidden disabilities, that may only extend to conditions like Autism and mental health problems.   
 
91% of our supporters said they regularly struggle to complete a journey because they need to access a toilet - clearly showing the dangers and impact of incontinence, and having the confidence to travel outside the home. 
 
It's crucial that future Blue Badge guidance and regulations better considers and benefit those living with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.  
 
That’s why we need your help to lobby the Government to ensure that the new regulations extend to patients that really need it. 
 
Be agents of change today and take part in this e-action by tweeting Jesse Norman MP, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, calling for more reform and asking for a meeting with Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
