Young Scot is the National Youth Information and Citizenship Agency for Scotland.
We provide young people between the ages of 11 and 26 with a mixture of information, ideas and incentives to help them become confident and active citizens.
In a nutshell this means that we give young people aged 11-26 information to help them make important decisions in their lives.
Young Scot National Entitlement Card
The Young Scot National Entitlement Card is a free electronic smart card for all young people aged 11 to 26. The card provides access to Scottish Government, Young Scot and local council services as well as a wide range of Scottish and European discounts. The card can also be used as proof of age through the PASS, National Proof of Age Standards Scheme.
