Cars enable people with limited mobility and a range of health issues to make independent decisions about how they travel. But the benefits of having a car and the Blue Badge scheme only work if parking is made available and kept accessible at destinations such as town centres, shopping centres, leisure venues, hospitals, transport interchanges. The Accessible Parking Award recognises work done to provide accessible parking and to ensure such spaces are not misused.
