    Hello,

    It's very difficult but you could maybe try too work in the hospital? If you are interested, if not, maybe work in charity?

    Depends on what kind of psychology you are interested in too to be honest.

    Sorry if this didn't help,

    Take care

    Look on the NHS website they take volunteers.
    Volunteer in a childrens home, housing association, childline. Literally anything which involves supporting people will be beneficial.

    You could concise this if you have a specific type of psychology you are aiming to do:

    Forensic Psychology: ex-offenders, prisons, Circles of Support, Young People with challenging behaviour
    Clinical: Mental Health, learning difficulties, individuals with dementia etc.
    Child: School, summer camps, childrens homes, etc
    Educational: really the same as above.


    The thing people should look for is volunteering with the client group you wish to work with. If you have experience with that it will help you a lot. Doesn't really matter if the context isn't psychologically related.
