Get on with numbers so you can get on in life

National Numeracy is an independent charity with a vision for everyone in the UK to get on with numbers so they can get on in life.​

​Our mission is to empower children and adults in the UK to  feel confident with everyday maths so they can fulfil their potential​ at work, home and school.

Our work improves how people understand and work with numbers in everyday life, ​sparking better opportunities and brighter futures.​

Poor numeracy is widespread and everyone is welcome to access our support. You'll find lots of free, helpful resources and advice about maths and numeracy  on this website.

We especially focus on helping people with low confidence or competence with numbers in disadvantaged communities, where the need is greatest. 

A great place to start improving number confidence and skill is with the free National Numeracy Challenge. Watch this short video to see how it can help you!
