An increasing number of young people have complex and continuing health needs. Their needs, the attitudes which individuals have towards them, and the way in which their needs are catered for by society can mean that it is more difficult for them to develop peer relationships, engage in leisure activities, take risks and develop sexual relationships than it is for other young people. Accessing further education and gaining employment may also be more problematic for them than it is for their peers. This may make it harder for them to develop independence and a positive self-esteem. Nurses who work with this group should be aware of the barriers which they may face, and plan support with them and their families so as to overcome these as far as possible, and to make them feel valued and respected
