About the Trust
The Maths Anxiety Trust is a sister organization to the Learning Skills Foundation. It is an independent, not for profit, organisation with no political affiliations whose target is to eliminate Maths Anxiety in Britain. We are working with academics and psychologists to evaluate and identify practical techniques to reduce anxiety and increase competence in maths.
The Trust has 4 aims:
To define and explain Maths Anxiety and alert people to its existence.
To enable people with Maths Anxiety to achieve their potential in education, working with parents and teachers.
To enable people with Maths Anxiety to achieve their potential in the workplace.
To help prevent poverty and increase social mobility with the confidence that comes from knowledge of and ease with everyday maths
Maths Anxiety Trust is privately funded. The Committee is made up of volunteers.
