"This year’s National Numeracy Day was undoubtedly a success, but our work doesn’t stop here. It’s vital that businesses, policymakers and charities continue to collaborate if we are to truly move the dial on poor numeracy skills."

What is a Lead Supporter?
Lead supporters are corporate organisations committed to tackling the UK’s crisis of poor numeracy confidence and skills.

Current supporters include our Founding Supporter KPMG alongside Lead Supporters Capital One, PFG, TP ICAP, Experian and the Lord Mayor’s Appeal Charity.
Why improve numeracy?
From the Prime Minister’s maths to 18 announcement, to families feeling the cost of living pinch and communities and businesses recovering from the pandemic, the need for everyday number confidence is more important than ever before.
2022 was a breakthrough year for the National Numeracy Day campaign, achieving a transformational level of impact across the UK, with #NationalNumeracyDay trending at No1 on Twitter.
Our campaign sparked a nationwide number natter, reached over 200m people in the media and inspired over 450,000 actions towards improving numeracy in the UK.
