Thank you for visiting National Numeracy's Virgin Money Giving page

Since our launch in March 2012 we have received a vast amount of interest and contact, with a number of individuals volunteering their time and expertise. We have also received some donation enquiries, which is why we have set up this page.

What are we trying to achieve?

We want every person in the UK to reach a level of numeracy that allows them to meet their full potential. We empower children and adults to use numbers confidently so they can fulfil their potential at school, home and work, helping to spark better opportunities in life. We believe that this is possible but that it will require sustained and coordinated effort from teachers, employers, community organisations, government, and individuals themselves.

How are we doing it?

We are about creating change – in individuals, in communities, and throughout society. This means that we take a programmatic and collaborative approach, with partners, to reach and engage those who need our support the most. We help improve number confidence and skills, helping to unlock a range of crucial next steps into education, training, and skills-building. Our programmes, tools, campaigns, and partnerships encourage action to improve poor numeracy levels.

• We provide inspirational, adaptive numeracy skills and confidence resources to help people understand and work with everyday maths.

• We reach, engage and help our beneficiaries directly, through partners, educators, employers, and in community settings.

• We demonstrate how everyone can improve their number confidence and skills and show how everyday numeracy differs from classroom mathematics.

• Our high-impact campaigns raise awareness of the benefits of improved numeracy and inspire positive action and change.

• We work with partners to influence policy and decision-making across government, business, and civil society.

• We monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our work against a clear set of outcome measures so that we can demonstrate our impact and keep improving.
