Seminars, brought to you by Young Scot and COSLA, for Local Authority senior officers and elected members to learn, share and discuss the ways that Young Scot and the shared smart service of the Young Scot National Entitlement Card can support local objectives.

For over thirty five years, Young Scot have been creating opportunities for young people in partnership with Local Authorities. These partnerships provide universal and localised youth opportunities and service provision. However, there are ways to work smarter and more efficiently together to make Scotland and our Local communities the best places to grow up.

Young Scot and COSLA will demonstrate how services have evolved in partnership with Local Authorities. Together, we have created useful and efficient services for young people through the Smart capability of Young Scot National Entitlement Card or other digital services. Delegates will discuss future use of Smart technology in their areas, and generate ideas for partnership work.

Find out how:

  • East Lothian are saving £50k per annum by using the Young Scot card for school travel
  • North Lanarkshire are ensuring the voices of young people are heard using online voting
  • Highland ensure disadvantaged young people are ready for school by providing breakfast using the Young Scot Card.
