Scotland’s Improvement Service has launched the young.scot membership platform for holders of the Young Scot national entitlement card.

It said it will enable them to obtain access to a collection of discounts, rewards and opportunities through a digital ‘shop window’, using their mygovscot myaccount.

The Improvement Service, which supports local government in the country, has developed the platform with Young Scot, the national youth information and citizenship charity.

It said they are now looking at where new digital services can be added to the platform, and speaking with other organisations to see how the same approach can be used for digital services for other groups such as older volunteers and unemployed people.

Louise Macdonald, chief executive of Young Scot, commented: “We are delighted to be launching our new Young Scot Membership Services.

“This innovative new platform, developed with our partners at the Improvement Service, provides Young Scot cardholders across the country with the opportunity to now become a member to securely access discounts, rewards and additional bespoke entitlements.”

Approximately 691,000 young people in Scotland are reported to hold the cards.
