Young Scot Rewards

YoungScot Rewards is a well established digital programme comparable to loyalty models used by the private sector.

Rewards provide over 107,000 young people across Scotland with access to incredible, positive opportunities, recognising their valuable contributions to their community and celebrating their achievements.

Users collect points for participating in activities such as healthy eating, sharing their opinions, volunteering or sports coaching and then use their points to redeem rewards.

Rewards can be direct claims for physical items (or part of a draw) as well as positive experiences or opportunities. All Rewards support further personal development.

The ethos is a simple one: rewarding young people for making choices that have a positive impact on themselves, their communities and the environment.

 

Become a Discount Partner

The discounts are designed to help young people make the most of their money while also increasing their awareness of local and European products and services. Discounts remove barriers to participation and support young people through points of transition.

There are  1500+ discounts available across the country; from money off transport, high street and online retailers, and eating out, to leisure and library facilities.

In addition, cardholders can also use their card to access 80,000 discounts in 38 other European countries, run in partnership with the European Youth Card Association.

It's really easy to be part of Young Scot Rewards

Activities

Do you offer a cultural, volunteering, active, employability or community action opportunities? Get in touch for information on how you can offer Reward points to young people.

Rewards

Think of it as a competition prize. Could you offer vouchers, tickets to an event, or an experience unique to your organisation. Young people will use their points to claim their Reward.

Promotion

We'll promote your activity or reward through the Young Scot Rewards newsletter and Young Scot's communications channels.

Having an active lifestyle has a positive impact on physical and mental health, so it’s exciting to see Young Scot using innovative technology to help young people to be more active, more often…”

Working with Young Scot on this campaign has been a key part of our five-year strategy, not just to inform and reach young people with this essential life skill, but to engage and motivate them to learn CPR and pass it on to their friends and family.

I really like Young Scot Rewards because of the variety of opportunities. I especially like the Connect Your Tech service because you can push yourself and reach an exercise goal.
