About Us

The Accord Card, Aberdeen City Council's smartcard, not only provides concessionary Travel to anyone aged 60 and over and many disabled people, it also gives secondary school pupils access to CashlessCatering at all of Aberdeen City Council's secondary schools and can be used as your library membership card across all of the City's Library

Whether you are 18 and want to buy a drink at a pub or you are 15 and want to buy tickets at a cinema, you may find the Accord Card useful as Proof of Age without having to carry your passport or driving licence around. Sport Aberdeen members will appreciate the Accord Card as their Sport Aberdeen Membership card and many young people already make good use of the Young Scot information portal. Depending on your circumstances, you may also qualify for Access to Leisure. That could be anything from FREE swimming to DISCOUNTS on sporting and leisure activities to HALF PRICE childcare! Visit the Access to Leisure to find out more.

What's more, the Accord Card is FREE and Aberdeen City residents can also get up to 50% discount on many things from leisure, sport to audio visual lending at libraries across the City.

Moving up to Secondary School

If you are the parent/carer of a child that is moving up to secondary school after the holidays, you will be interested to know that your child's school meal balance is moving with your child. Effectively this means that any money left in your child's primary school meal account has been added to the secondary school meal account. If your child's primary school meal account is in arrears, we have checked the balance on the secondary school meal account and wherever possible we have balanced both accounts meaning there is nothing you need to do. If the money owed for primary school meals is in excess of the balance on the secondary school meal account, we will email you a reminder so you know how much money you need to pay for any primary school meals owed.
