Enhancing peer support for young people with diabetes is a high priority for DAWN Youth in the Netherlands. Another is its work to help teachers and other school personnel to improve the support they can offer. Indeed, support is the core principle of all DAWN Youth Netherlands activities. Moreover, support underpins a third key area: promoting the use by healthcare providers of a system for the regular assessment of young people’s quality of life, and using this information to build a national database to help understand their needs. Pauline Stouthart provides an update on the various DAWN Youth activities in the Netherlands.
