Notes A small proportion of residents will need to renew their Disabled Persons' Freedom Pass or have their entitlement reassessed this winter.

The Council has written to those residents whose passes will expire on 31 March 2016 and to those that need to be reassessed. The letter provides full details about how to renew, including a Frequently Asked Questions leaflet. The deadline to respond is 21 December 2015.

If you have a Older Persons' Pass which is due to expire on 31 March 2016, then London Councils will be writing to you directly in January 2016.

Freedom Passes for blind and disabled people are obtainable from Kensington Town Hall.
Applications for the Older Persons Freedom Pass are made online via the Freedom Pass website If you are unable to apply online, you can pick up a paper application form, which you will need to complete and return in the post. Application forms can be picked up from borough libraries
