What sort of careers can I do to help people or animals?

I am in the final year of my English Lit degree but I am thinking I should have waited a while before I decided what to study at uni.. I'd love to do something for animal welfare or people. Am considering nursing but what else coukd I do that would offer decent pay but more importantly allow me to help others? If you could tell me how to get into these paths in the UK too that would be great :)
