We are now adding maths to our learning offer in prisons, to complement our existing reading programme.

Over half of people in prison have ‘entry level’ maths skills, meaning that their numeracy level is below that expected of a child leaving primary school.

As a result, they may struggle with basic daily tasks that involve numbers, for example, telling the time, understanding medication and managing their spending.

How it works


Our maths programme is based on the same principles as our reading programme.

Learners will work with a peer mentor on a one-to-one basis. They will undertake short, regular sessions at a time, place and frequency of their choosing.

There are no exams, and no classrooms.

You can preview the books we are using to support people with their maths skills.
