Who we are

We are National Numeracy, a charity set up in 2012 to raise the levels of numeracy in the UK among both adults and children. The Government's 2011 Skills for Life report found that 49% of adults in the UK have the numeracy expected of primary school children, we want to change this. Our online Challenge is a free, confidential way for adults to test and improve their numeracy.

Hear from someone we've helped

Maria, from Oxfordshire, works with numbers every day but had always found maths extremely painful. She thought it was a feeling she'd never be able to overcome, and instead helped those around her to progress.

She spoke to us about facing her fears, and the reward of self-confidence and said:

"The National Numeracy Challenge is a positive message; it’s not demanding of anyone, and it’s not judging anyone. It was the fear of judgement that was getting to me before. And when you’re acting out of fear and doing things to compensate for this worry that everyone thinks you’re stupid, you do really obsessive things. National Numeracy’s positive messaging makes you think, “Somebody cares. Somebody’s cared enough to produce this.” So, thank you!"
