National Entitlement Card

The National Entitlement Card 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.

If you are a resident of, or have recently moved into the Highland Council area and have a query about your National Entitlement Card you can contact your local Highland Council Service point or telephone 01349 886606 for assistance.
