Become a National Numeracy Day Lead Supporter

Help empower people to fulfil their potential, engage stakeholders, and raise your business profile

National Numeracy Day is the nation's only day dedicated to improving everyday maths. It's a friendly, inclusive and inspiring digital campaign packed with practical and fun activities, backed by celebrities, leading businesses, government departments and civil service organisations.

We are actively seeking impact-driven organisations to help enable this year's campaign. Together we will raise awareness of the importance of numeracy and empower people to take action towards improving their numeracy at home, work and school.

So far, this high-profile and award-winning campaign has inspired over 190,000 actions to improve numeracy – the crucial first steps towards unlocking life-changing opportunities and tackling social mobility.

With 2022 being the fifth annual National Numeracy Day, and the growing momentum around the importance of improving adult numeracy skills, we are planning something very special.

Hear from 2021 corporate supporters, including KPMG, Santander and Experian, on why your organisation should support this high-impact campaign, in the video above. The 2021 campaign actually achieved 86,783 actions to improve numeracy; smashing the target of 50,000!

"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."

When is the campaign?

In 2022 the campaign date is Wednesday 18th May, with activity and impact running throughout the entire month of May.

"At HSBC UK we understand the importance that numbers play in people's everyday lives, especially when it comes to how we all understand and navigate our own financial circumstances. It is easy to imagine that we are not numbers people and build up anxiety around our finances as a result. We are thrilled to work with National Numeracy as a Lead Supporter of National Numeracy Day."
