    I volunteered in a care home when I was 16 and 17 - have you got any near you that you can apply to, if this is your thing? Or something that your school, current or previous, that you can volunteer in.

    When you volunteered at the care home,what kind of stuff did you do there, what responsibilities did you have?

    In truth we didn't do any physical stuff, just got involved in activities like dinners and poetry reading and gardening etc

    No, but then again I didnt ask or intend for that because I wasn't interested in medicine. No harm in emailing or phoning up though, specifying what you want and whether there is anything like that available.
