Numeracy is the ability to understand and use maths in daily life, at home, and at work. Whether that be improving household finances, helping children with homework, making more sense of the stats and facts in the media, or improving numeracy skills specific to your line of work. Multiply provides free maths courses to eligible adults.

People who improve their numeracy skills are more likely to be in employment, have higher wages, and better well-being, and will be more able to progress to higher levels of free training to secure a skilled job in our economy.
