Afternoon sessions


Making the Blue Badge scheme work

Blue Badge parking permits let disabled people park nearer to where they’re going. Recent reforms have expanded eligibility to people with ‘hidden disabilities’, which presents new opportunities and challenges. Meanwhile, fraud and misuse of permits are an on-going threat to the scheme’s integrity. 

​The session will discuss such as:

  • How to manage the expansion of the Blue Badge scheme

  • Detecting and deterring Blue Badge fraud and mis-use

  • Dealing with offenders: Education or prosecution?

Confirmed panellists:

  • Penny Winder, Director, Alpha Parking (Chair)

  • Graham Footer, Chief Executive Officer, Disabled Motoring UK

  • Bill Ashton, Blue Badge Fraud Investigator, BBFI
