Physical disability registration
What is registration?
Hampshire County Council hold a register for people who have a disability. If you are registered then your details are stored on a confidential database and you are given a small card as proof of your registration. It will not cost you any money to register.
How do I become registered?
To be registered as having a physical impairment you will either need to have a diagnosis of a long term condition which is supported by your GP, or you will need to complete the grid on the Disability Registration form.
If it is required you maybe visited by a Care Manager to discuss your situation and any other services which may benefit you.
What are the benefits of being registered?
Registration can be a pathway for easier access to certain benefits and concessions such as
- Getting a Disabled Persons Railcard
- The offer of discounts or assistance at some leisure venues such as museums, arts centre’s and theatre’s – please inquire with individual venues
However all concessions are discretionary and may vary.

Registration cards currently last for five years. If your card is about to expire or you need a replacement then please telephone Adult Services on 0845 603 5630 who will take your details and pass them on to the relevant team.
