Following the success of last year’s event, the Disabled Motoring Awards UK will once again be celebrating and recognising those who are making a difference for disabled drivers, passengers and Blue Badge holders.

Award Categories

There are 10 award categories in total and below we have highlighted some of those most relevant to the parking sector.

The Best Parking Award will be presented to an organisation which has demonstrated a commitment to providing exceptional parking services to disabled motorists. Public and private owners/operators can be nominated. In your nomination, be sure to include information such as how many how disabled bays are sited (e.g. number, design, signage) and perhaps an example of how specific issues for Blue Badge users have been resolved.

The Effective Enforcement Award aims to recognise local authority and private operators who have successfully enforced Blue Badge fraud. Include examples in your nominations.

The Accessible Days Out Award covers all types of visitor attractions, large or small, and will be awarded where effort is made to ensure their facilities are available to all. Features such as clean accessible toilets, level access throughout, mobility aids on offer, helpful staff can all contribute to an outstanding day out.
