Committed to building the nation's number confidence and skills

Low numeracy is holding 3.5 million Londoners back from fulfilling their potential, by increasing vulnerability to unemployment, debt, fraud and financial exclusion.

Since 2022, National Numeracy have been working with the Appeal on a project called ‘Every Londoner Counts’ to boost numeracy, confidence and skills across London. Supporting in training a network of Numeracy Champions who are embedded within businesses, organisations and community groups, they are on a mission to uplift those adults grappling with low numeracy. 

The Appeal has supported National Numeracy to run workshops that inspire positive attitudes towards numeracy – all supplemented an accessible online tool designed to encourage, monitor and celebrate progress. Our funds have also helped to support National Numeracy’s latest report Number Confidence and Social Mobility which shows number confidence is an essential driver of social mobility.
