Multiply is a government-funded programme to help adults improve their numeracy skills.

Individuals aged 19 and over who don’t have maths GCSE at grade C (Grade 4 and above), can access free numeracy courses through Multiply to build confidence with numbers and gain a qualification.

Multiply will help the Levelling Up mission to ensure that by 2030, the number of people successfully completing high-quality skills training will have significantly increased in every area of the United Kingdom.

WEA is launching its Multiply Community Grants programme for 2024/25 with funding available in Lancashire County Council (excluding Blackpool and Blackburn).

Grants of between £10k and £25k are available to eligible VCSE organisations to support local residents with numeracy skills.

A new funding round is now live. The links to the application form, guidance document, eligibility questions and FAQs documents are below.
