I am in the process of going to a tribunal for DLA and I am aware that, if this is approved, I will get a blue badge for my car.
In the meantime, I’m having problems with getting a parking space near to the entrance to where I work. There are disabled parking spaces but as yet I haven’t parked in them because I don’t have a blue badge. However under the Equality Act 2010 I notice that multiple sclerosis (along with HIV and cancer) are automatically considered a disability from date of diagnosis.
The manager did suggest I park next to her space when I mentioned my severe joint pain at the beginning of the year (although this has been forgotten - conveniently) and not long ago I was asked when my blue badge would arrive!!!
I would appreciate your thoughts
