    Welcome to the community @luthferahman786
    On the gov website it says:

    Transport Minister Jesse Norman said:

    Blue badges are a lifeline for disabled people, giving them the freedom and confidence to get to work and visit friends independently.

    The changes  will ensure that this scheme is extended equally to people with hidden disabilities so that they can enjoy the freedoms that many of us take for granted.

    The new criteria will extend eligibility to people who:

    • cannot undertake a journey without there being a risk of serious harm to their health or safety or that of any other person (such as young children with autism)
    • cannot undertake a journey without it causing them very considerable psychological distress
    • have very considerable difficulty when walking (both the physical act and experience of walking)
    As Ami says, check what criteria your local area has and let us know if we can help at all :)
