  • Fife Council launches UKSPF Multiply funding to improve the numeracy skills of adults

    Created: 31/10/2022, Updated: 01/11/2022

    Multiply is a ring-fenced element of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) with up to £559m targeted across the UK at improving the functional numeracy skills of adults (age 19+) through personal tutoring, digital training, and flexible courses

    The Multiply allocation to Fife in 2022/23 is £701,053. This increases to £808,904 and £808,903 in the following 2 years respectively.

    Fife Council wishes to use this funding to establish and consolidate a ‘numeracy pathway’ which ensures a range of support is available from confidence building to gaining numeracy-related qualifications relevant to work.

    Multiply funding in Fife will initially be available for project delivery from January 2023 – March 2024. There will be an opportunity to apply for continuation or additional funding for a further 12 months (April 2024 to March 2025) depending on delivery and outcomes.

    An indicative allocation of £300,000 is available through this grants process. It is expected that the average grant awarded will be around £40,000, but applications for higher amounts are welcomed if they can evidence the need and ability to achieve Multiply outcomes.

    It is anticipated that a large proportion of project costs will relate to staffing to deliver training and support activities for beneficiaries. These should be new staff roles within your organisation or additional hours for existing staff.

    The target audience is people aged 19+ who are out of work or who are in education or work but are struggling to progress due to numeracy-related challenges.
