Where can I find a free laptop?

I would appreciate your advice and or assistance in finding information on free laptops for the disabled. 

I receive Income Support with Disability Premium and DLA. I would be much obliged if you could assist or refer me to a service who help the disabled in IT education.

Editor’s note: If you are not eligible for support under Access to Work there are a number of sources of training and recycled computers. AbilityNet www.abilitynet.org.uk should be your first port of call for advice. 

Leonard Cheshire are worth contacting http://www.lcdisability.org. 

For equipment go to Computers for the Disabled at http://www.cftd.co.uk.  

Remploy might help too http://ecycle.remploy.co.uk. And I just came across this long list of recyclers, some of who say they provide free computers for disabled people (you'll have to go through them and pick out the relevant ones) http://www.itforcharities.co.uk/pcs.htm.
