This paper addresses issues of concerns relating to the group whose needs in relation to sexuality have for too long been ignored, namely those with profound and multiple disabilities. The development of a specialist project to meet those needs is outlined, along with some of the difficulties and dilemmas faced along the way. The importance of staff training and support for staff to explore their own values and feelings towards the sexuality of this client group is emphasised.
