    Heyy
    I wanna go into med and hopefully work with children- I need to start volunteering so I can either do a care home or a children's centre
    What do u guys think would be good for uni - to me it makes sense to do it at a children's centre but most ppl who do med do it at a care home

    I personally would say that you should do the childrens centre option as then you would of had experience working with chikdren. But if universities favour people who voluntrered in care homes then do that. It is your choice though!!!

    You could try both

    Do you know what you'd be doing in the children's centre? The thing that I think universities like about people having experience in care homes etc. is that it shows they know the less glamourous side of medicine and caring for people. If basically you're a glorified baby-sitter I'm not sure it will give you the same experience, or the same things to discuss in your PS/interview.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
