Gunilla LÖFMAN



Through my studies I became B.Sc., realized my dream and created an accountancy firm, led it until life gave me a visually impairment and the knowledge about how difficult it is to get access to information as visually impaired. At the same time I was given the opportunity to move on and learn about life. During the last 17 years I have had the possibility to work with the following tasks:


I have been a member of the board, the vice-chair and the chair for The Federation ofSwedish Speaking Visually Impaired in Finland, the chair for a regional organisation of visually impaired persons and the chair for SAMS – The Cooperative Federation on Disability Issues – I am one of the founders of this federation. I have also had the opportunity to be the chair of the Nordic Cooperative Group regarding Visual Impairment, a member of the European Blind Union´s Woman´s working group and a member of VANE – the National Council on Disability.


I am still a member of the Foundation for Swedish Speaking Visually Impaired in Finland. All other tasks I have left behind to be able to concentrate on projectsregarding accessible information both abroad and in Finland.
