During AYM 2005 a minute concerning sexual abuse and misconduct and in 2007, two documents were developed:
- The Promotion of Right Relationships
- Guidelines for Prevention and Management of Sexual Abuse and Misconduct
In 2009 the committee changed its name and policy to “Respectful Relationships” and Contact Friends were appointed at that time. It was at a Contact Friend workshop in 2015 where further changes were made to the policy “Supporting a Safe Quaker Community” from “Respectful Relationships” (as has been the direction in other churches and faith communities).
