  • I am disabled, but do not have a blue badge. What do I do?

    Some members of staff may not be Blue Badge holders but still have recognised mobility impairments that make travelling by car essential. It may be that this has been recognised in the past by the University and reasonable adjustments made on their behalf, i.e. awarding a car park pass. If individuals believe this is the case, they should indicate this in the criteria section of the application form and provide supporting medical evidence.
