This paper discusses a case study of the development of a sexuality policy for a learning disability service, identifies key considerations for the development process and examines the wider implications for the service. The intervention was based on a consultancy model, with external consultants who were commissioned to manage the policy development task: the stages in this process are discussed. The operational, management and practice issues that emerged as a result of the intervention and the ways in which they were resolved are described. These issues include the different interests at stake and the incorporation of the views and experiences of users, parents and direct support staff. A model for policy development, including pointers for the management of sexuality and for practice intervention is provided.
