Funding Scheme to Improve Numeracy Skills

Local organisations within Glasgow, including community groups and social enterprises, are being invited to take advantage of a new grant scheme that will deliver numeracy learning opportunities designed to inspire and motivate adults.

As part of a UK Government initiative to improve adult numeracy, Glasgow was awarded a total of £4.5 million through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund to deliver the Multiply initiative. An allocation of £3.14m is available in 2023/25. The new grant scheme will use £1.39m of this funding to create learning opportunities across the city for local people and their communities.

Glasgow Life, the charity that delivers culture, sport and learning programmes to improve wellbeing in the city, is managing the Multiply adult numeracy funding on behalf of Glasgow City Council.

Local organisations now have an opportunity to expand their learning offer for current or potential employees and members of their local community through customised courses that reflect the needs of the provider and participants.

The Multiply Grant Scheme will support free learning opportunities for adults aged 19 and over who live, work, study or volunteer within Glasgow to improve numeracy, change attitudes, and build confidence. Learning opportunities will include courses that enable adults to achieve qualifications up to and including SCQF Level 5.

Applications for the Multiply Grant Scheme are now open, and the deadline to apply is 5pm on Tuesday 21 March 2023. More information on the scheme and details of how to apply can be found by following the link below:
