Hello, I'm going into my second year of uni and I'd ideally like to start getting some work experience now, but I'm not sure how possible this is going to be with covid?
I'm studying psychology, and at the moment am between two careers - forensic or developmental psychologist, so I think the NHS would be a good place to volunteer/get experience, but I'm not really sure where to start. What do volunteers do? Will they be taking on volunteers this year? And if not, where else could I gain experience?

Thanks so much in advance

You could email your local NHS trust and see what they think. Download and fill out the forms for NHS work experience. Volunteering is more like helping patients out in serving meals and also checking if they know their way around. Helping patients and visitors in the corridors. Hope that helps.
