During the “Why Sheppey Matters” programme this week, we spoke to Stewart Kitching, from the ‘Swale Stroke Support Group’ about Blue Badges, which allows people with disabilities to have free parking in most car parks and also on roadways. This enables them to access shops and other public areas if their mobility is limited. Without these badges many disabled people would be unable to go out at all. Stewart highlighted the fact that badge holders undergo an assessment before being granted a Blue Badge and asked the general public to bear in mind that not all disabilities are visible.
