About Synstraff

Synstraff is a meeting place in Nacka, Sweden, and the Internet to visually impaired and physically disabled which was created in September 2009 by the visually impaired in the non-profit organization Spånga Blåband and Erik Lindberg as its president.

Our policy is to promote the integration of the visually impaired in everyday life and in the labor market.

Synstraff wants to help with the following four main parameters:

  • Help and advice with the computer
  • Tips and advice customized to meet the specific needs of a particular group
  • Advice concerning the choice of support
  • Hints and tips on specific things in daily use in everyday life

Also since 2009, Synstraff is developing a project for the visually impaired called "Availability Blå Vägen", based on collaborative planning and consultation with the direction of Blå Vägen. Integration is a visual disability access to society.

Synstraff for the visually impaired and disabled people became successful in the community thanks to the trust and loyalty that you showed us and we thank you for that.

The integration of visually impaired and people with disabilities is the main subject of Synstraff, and also represents a personal commitment.

Synstraff which is a form of meetings for the visually impaired and people with physical disabilities and includes people related to them who do not have disabilities, became successful in the community through trust and loyalty that our members have shown and we thank them for it.
