[ubuntu-uk] Users - disabled or learning difficulty

I have made contact with a local charity who are soon to create a 
facility of a few PCs for use by their clients.

I am not aware of a Ubuntu related group which has such an interest - 
comments would be welcomed.

My knowledge of software for such users only brings to mind 
proprietary software  (on windows). The charity has a small 
organisation which is apparently only familiar with windows, and is 
taking advice from another charity which ultimately is heavily funded 
by a well resourced very large software company (ms).

I will do my best in the cause of Ubuntu however, it its a bit 
unlikely that there will be a major culture change just because I 
happened to walk through the door today.

A related question:
If I happen to be successful, they will need some measure of support, 
ideally several part time volunteers. Is anyone in the bracknell area 
who would be prepared to help a charity with Ubuntu on a free basis or 
very low rates?
