1. Study visit - Deafblind team, the regional rehabilitation team for persons with deafblindness

The deafblind team serves as a regional rehabilitation team for persons with deafblindness throughout the region of Västra Götaland. The team provides services, support and technichal aids for persons with deafblindness, all ages. The target group is persons with deafblindness, or with a combination of visual and hearing impairment at a degree of impairment so severe that sight and hearing can not compensate for each other. Deafblindness limits the ability to participate in activities and restricts full participation in society. We offer rehabilitation and habilitation services from a psychosocial, audiological, communicational, technical and paedagogical perspective.

5. Study visit - The Swedish Association of the Visually Impaired

Short summary of The Swedish Blind Union Gothenburg’s current program.

The Swedish Blind Union Gothenburg is a district of the Swedish Blind Union and we have worked and strived to further the lives and needs of the blind and visually impaired for 107 years. Our main goals are to represent the blind and visually impaired in the public sphere to ensure that our perspectives are represented in local governance and organize activities to offer our members ample opportunity to meet others in the same situation to both break isolation, create new bonds and exchange experiences. To this end we have 8 employees and several groups made up of concerned and/or interested members that engage in our policy work or with organizing activities and events.

These activities cater to the needs and interests of our members. A few examples are utility courses and workshops such as to read and type in Brail and how to manage iPhone apps and accessibility. Theoretical study circles on history, literature, music and welfare technology. Practical classes in weaving, jewel-crafting, tin craft and painting. This, together with festivities and social events make up the core of our day to day activities. To this, we’ve currently added a special project focused on decentralizing our organisation to ensure that even members in the furthest part of our district has access to local activities to avoid curtailing their interests in us.

To ensure that our perspective is represented in local governance takes both manpower and effort. We have representatives in several local disability councils to consult on local suppositions and changes to local institutions and services. At current, the national goal is to further our position and need for habitation and rehabilitation. To this, we continuously work with education, unemployment, social support, transport services and accessibility issues. At current, a special project on the national level focus on escort services to ensure our right to move, live and act freely in society without the limitations set by our physical limitations.
