Young Scot NEC Card
The Young Scot National Entitlement Card is a partnership between the Scottish Government, the Improvement Service, Young Scot and all 32 Local Authorities in Scotland. The National Entitlement Card (NEC) is managed by Local Authorities, with the national infrastructure being supported by the Improvement Service.
The Young Scot NEC card is a free smart card available to all young people aged 11-26, who are living in Scotland. It gives them access to over 1,500 discounts and special offers at shops, transport and services across Scotland.
There are 461,505 young people across Scotland carrying the card.
NEC card holders have the benefit of the following schemes:
•The PASS (Proof of Age Standards Scheme) hologram on the card enables the card to be accepted as a valid proof-of-age card across theUK, enabling the cardholder to obtain the age restricted goods and services to which they are entitled.
•The Young Scot / Euro<26 branding on the NECs allows young people to access all of Young Scot's information and discount services in Scotland and across 42 other countries through the Euro<26 collaboration.
•Local authority services are also available through the card, such as cashless catering free school meals, plus leisure services and library services.
