What qualifications are needed to be on the committee?

If it’s the committee of a registered company then there are some minimum requirements set down by the regulator, Companies House. If it’s the committee of a registered Charity then there are some minimum requirements set down by the charity regulator, the Charity Commission. If it’s the committee of an unregistered body (generally known as an unincorporated association) then essentially there are no criteria unless the committee agrees to set its own.
