26 Feb 2021

What is National Numeracy Day?

National Numeracy Day is a positive, celebratory annual event that helps to reframe attitudes and abilities around using numbers in everyday life. Its aim is to empower everyone in the UK to improve their confidence with numeracy. It brings together individuals, employers, educators and supporters from across the UK to show the importance of numbers and the benefits of using them more effectively in everyday life.

This year National Numeracy Day is on 19th May.

How do we use your stories?

As National Numeracy Day is about empowering everyone in the UK, we love to champion stories from anyone who has changed their relationship with numbers. This can range from quoting you on our social media, to appearing on our website, and featuring in videos.
