    Sociology isn't the same as being a social worker

    Personally, I think social work, especially youth work, is the most efficient way to directly reach people and make a difference in their lives, along with teaching. It means you can give practical help to the people who need it most in the UK, and really help to shape their futures.

    If you go into social work, then it's best to work with the elderly or disabled. Children's services are corrupt so it's difficult to do right even if you only want to help:
    You could research Brian Gerrish "Child Stealing by the State".
