About Us

National Numeracy is an independent charity established in 2012 to help raise low levels of numeracy among both adults and children and to promote the importance of everyday maths skills. We aim to challenge negative attitudes, influence public policy and offer practical ways of helping adults and children improve their numeracy - in the community, the workplace and formal education.

At National Numeracy we know how important it is to help staff upskill. Working in partnership with Health Education England (HEE) we are committed to supporting all healthcare staff across the NHS to gain the confidence and skills they need with numbers.

National Numeracy have been working across health and social care since 2014 to support the healthcare workforce who would like to brush up on their numeracy skills. Our unique attitudinal approach focuses on busting myths and tackling negative mindsets around numeracy in the UK. By acknowledging, understanding and addressing staffs concerns and fears we aim to take people from “I can’t do maths” to “I’ll give it a go”.

This network offers a space for colleagues interested in numeracy within the health and social care sector to interact with each other and access numeracy-related content from National Numeracy.
