Last week, we began a new campaign, the biggest creative campaign in United Response’s history – Postcards from the Edges.

We’ve launched a brand new website to allow people to share their artwork, poetry, stories, collages or messages. Our hope is that many people will get involved and express what is important to them – their lives, hopes, fears and achievements.

There are stories behind every postcard on the website; many are and will remain private. However, some people wanted to share their stories with the world, many hoping to create better understanding of the lives of disabled people.

This blog is the second in our series of ‘Postcard of the week’. This postcard has been created by a Maree and portrays her relationship with her cat called Garfield.

You can read the full story of “My Cat” and see many more postcards on the Postcards from the Edges website.

If you want to make postcards at home, request one of our practical postcard packs – it contains everything you need; from the postcard template to ideas for themes – just email Or you can make one online. Just hit the green ‘Create a card’ button on the homepage.
