"There’s no such thing as a 'maths brain’. Anyone can be numerate, it’s just a matter of confidence. It’s great to see that National Numeracy is helping people to find opportunities to improve their skills during everyday life - doing even a little a day can make maths feel more familiar and less scary.

Being bad at maths shouldn’t be something to brag about and there’s no reason be embarrassed to look for help when it comes to numeracy - National Numeracy is a great place to start!"
