It is not an exaggeration to say I use the platform weekly whilst trying to find decent partners to work with Wildlife Trusts on new projects.

There are so many agencies out there so it's great to have a curated selection that you know will understand the needs of a charity digital project.

Dovetail has been SUPER useful! Definitely would have found it so much harder without it.
