We’re all

numbers people.

Many of us say we’re not numbers people. But numbers play a big part in all our lives. National Numeracy Day is all about recognising this and helping people sharpen their skills and build their confidence. Being better with numbers isn’t a special talent, it’s something we can all learn
 
The UK’s first ever National Numeracy Day was a great success. Read about the campaign in our 2018 report.
