Supporting Your Child's Understanding of Maths

Do you want to improve your child's understanding of maths as well as your own?

Having a good understanding of numbers and the ability to make mathematical decisions are vital for everyday life. From working out a restaurant bill to organising your personal finances, maths is something we all use each and every day and often without realising it.

People with good numeracy skills are more likely to have greater employment opportunities, command higher wages and improved wellbeing, but millions of adults across the UK lack these essential numeracy skills and confidence with maths.

We're here to help

Help with Maths response form
In conjunction with the Multiply Project, we're planning a series of parent / carer workshops to help improve your understanding of maths. Our aim is to boost your maths confidence, so that you're better placed to support your child develop key numeracy skills.
