The goal of Synpynkta! is to: - support individuals in having efficient contacts with public agencies - help users and their organisations to exercise influence with the help of formal complaints - make the experiences of vulnerable groups visible in municipalities´ quality assurance work.

Expected results and effects

Effect: Through the increased amount of more efficient filed complaints empower marginalised peoples´ rights, strengthen the influence of civil society, and in the long term contribute to a higher quality in services provided by the public sector. Results: - An accessible digital channel where individuals can file complaints to the public sector - Possibilities for civil society to exercise influence with the help of formal complaints - More, better complaints filed to the city of Gothenburg.

The app will be developed iteratively and incramentally. First, a closed beta version targeting individuals will be released. This version will later be expanded with a module targeting organisations. After feedback from users, the app will be further developed into an open beta (computer and mobile phone) to be launched in Gothenburg.
