Welcome to the National Entitlement Card Programme homepage.

National Entitlement Cards (NECs) are issued by the 32 Scottish councils and are just one element in a wider Scottish Government sponsored programme called Customer First which aims to encourage all local councils to share resources and create efficiencies to ensure that Scottish citizens have easier to access services and facilities at the first point of contact with their council.

To find out how to apply for a NEC, or to find out more information about the scheme, please use the menu on the left hand side. 

The National Entitlement Card (NEC) programme is a multi-application smartcard scheme run as a partnership between the Scottish Government, Scotland’s local councils and others to make it quicker and easier to access services (such as transport, cashless catering, library/leisure membership, payments, concessions, proof of age) using one card rather than many.
