Welcome to Number Partners

Our vision is a world where all young people have the confidence to say ‘I love maths!’

Get a flavour of Number Partners from pupils and volunteer partners at Bigland Green School and take a look at more case studies.

Low levels of numeracy have a far-reaching negative impact on life chances. Evidence shows that a positive attitude and self-belief in one’s own mathematical abilities is key to being numerate. Our aim is to work in areas of high deprivation to expand young people’s employability skills and life chances, and expand their social and cultural capital.

We do this by providing easy and rewarding skills-based volunteer opportunities to businesses and universities, harnessing the power of volunteers to impact young people’s numeracy. Number Partners volunteers boost children’s confidence – and therefore attainment – in the subject by bringing it to life outside the classroom.
