Frontier Land is about creating an innovative shared space where young people and young adults can meet to do life. The creation of a shared space for young people and young adults who are deaf/blind and/or have complex needs will help to realise their full potential, with the assistance of mentor buddies and trained volunteers. There has been a vacuum created in identifying the needs for 13 -21 year olds in the Belfast, Newtownabbey and Carrick areas. Young deaf/blind people and/or those with complex needs leave the after school club at Sense provision and there is no place they can go. This ensures that within the Newtownabbey/Belfast area a place exists where deaf/blind children and young adults can meet. This is a hub where they can have fun, be themselves and develop entrepreneurial, confidence and team building skills.
