Hi there, try calling the blf helpline 03000 030 555 (lines open Mon-Fri 9am - 5pm, they have people who can advise on this. Hope you get sorted soon. Irene x

You may qualify for attendance allowance. Best to seek advice, maybe from help the aged . Now is the time to reapply for your blue badge, i.e 1 month before expiry.
