This week’s postcard of the week was created by Sarah and is called ‘The new me’.

Sarah receives support from United Response and wanted to join in the Postcards from the Edges campaign to tell people about how much she’s changed in the last few years.

“I used to have a bad life and never felt good about myself,” Sarah said. “My support staff make me feel good about myself. They help me to look nice and I like people to notice the change in me.

“Everyone now says how different I am and how pretty I am. It makes me feel really really happy. It is great to see my postcard on the website with all the others; I hope people look at it!”

Find out more of Sarah’s story by viewing the postcard on the Postcards from the Edges website.
