DLUHC has worked closely with Ngage Solutions since 2009 to deliver a number of contracts that have supported businesses to grow, reduce carbon emissions and be more innovative.
Local businesses that have been supported are now much better placed to meet the challenges of Net Zero.

Over the last few years, I have had several interactions with various members of the Ngage and Buckinghamshire Business First team. They are my go-to for Net Zero, Rural, and Skills signposting and have also been helpful in giving feedback on the FSB’s own Net Zero Hub regarding content and usability.
Should there be an opportunity to work with the team at Buckinghamshire Business First and Ngage in the future I would always be happy to do so as they are a trusted organisation.

With our 20-year heritage and impressive track record, partners can be assured their projects will be managed with maximum impact and minimum wastage.
