Launched to celebrate our 40th anniversary, Postcards from the Edges is the biggest creative campaign in our history! Postcards from the Edges website

Through artwork, poetry, stories, collages or messages, we want people with, or affected by, disabilities to express what is important to them – using the blank space of a postcard.

The subject could be anything, from your hopes and dreams to your thoughts about the world around you.

Submitted cards will be featured on our Postcards from the Edges website.

What is the project about?

Here, fashion model Kelly Knox explains the ideas behind the project and why she is supporting it.


Our aim

Our aim is to capture as many stories, thoughts views and creative ideas as possible. We want the website to reflect the huge range of people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, physical disabilities and other challenges.

Whether you want to paint, draw or write their postcards, the platform is free to be creative in any way you choose. Postcards can be created online on the website, submitted by the post or uploaded.

The Postcards from the Edges book

Over 1,00 postcards have been submitted to the project so far, and some of the most striking have been exhibited at national galleries across the UK, as well as in the House of Commons.

A selection of thought-provoking entries are featured in the Postcards from the Edges book:
