    Hey Im 26 and have a degree in Social Care. Im starting to think I have chose the wrong road and now I am working currently as a support worker for the last few years and have come to extremely dislike my job. I cant afford to go back to university to study anythong else and not sure are there many job options with my degree. Advise would be greatly appreciated

    Try an online career assessment, so you can find out what suits you best.
    Work out what you're right for first, which will slim your options.
    And then talk to people in the right industry and ask how you can start. It might be from the bottom up, but so be it.
    Good luck!

    Start to look at job sites like charity job to get a feel for what's out there and what might appeal. Figure out where you already have skills that might match. Make some sort of sideways move to begin with. Try and fit some small voluntary commitment, which can help build skills, around your job.

    Helps to expand your horizons.

    Probably better not quitting until you have something to go to.
