The matter of Freedom Pass entitlement is for London Councils and the London boroughs who issue the passes. The criteria under which passes are issued on a discretionary basis to disabled people whose disability does not fall within the statutory criteria is determined by the individual boroughs.

I do not have details of the criteria applied by each borough but I am sure London Councils will be happy to help you with this.
