I know someone who has just started their first year at UCL studying Medicine. He told me that it was very important that I volunteered at a care home for at least 3 years. At my school, they do let us volunteer at a care home however I chose to do the Royal Navy section instead. I also have an autistic older sibling who I have cared for since I was young. I have tried to ask some care homes if I can volunteer out of school but they think that 14 is too young. Is it worth me changing to volunteering in a care home through school, or is caring for my brother enough for a good university.
