Housing provider supports positive thinking with the National Numeracy Challenge

Housing provider, Longhurst Group, are proving they aren’t nervous about numbers as they encourage staff to tackle the apprehension around maths in the UK by taking on the National Numeracy Challenge.

The organisation will pilot the scheme for the East Midlands region, along with Lincolnshire Cooperative

Longhurst Group held a launch event to promote the scheme throughout their organisation on Monday 16th March 2015. Alongside eager staff, attending the event were external parties such as Lincolnshire Training Network, SkillsReach and Lincolnshire Rural Housing Association Ltd. The occasion welcomed guest speakers from the National Numeracy Challenge and allowed Longhurst Group to disseminate the necessary information needed to pilot the scheme effectively.
