Im currently in my AS year and hoping to study Mental Health Nursing when i go to university i have only recently found out about the specific career though and am worrying about my lack of experience.
I have tried applying for a few voluntary jobs in charity shops and care homes but were either told I would need to work full time, they were full [of DofE kids] or i needed more experience.
Is there any other types of voluntary work that could possibly help me?
Does anybody in Sheffield know of care homes that are willing to take newbies who cannot work full time?
Also i did DofE Bronze, will that help my chances?

Try looking at local day centres. MIND charity do a lot of local projects where a lot of MH patients go and are always looking for volunteers.
