What about ?

var
  St : String;
  Ch : PChar;
begin
  Ch := PChar(St);
  ...
end;

itamar's answer will convert string to PChar.  If you want to convert string to Char, try this:

var
  c: PChar;
  s: string;
begin
  c := ' ';
  if (Length(s) > 0) then
    c := @s[1];
  ...
end;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

P.S.  Should read
    c := s[1];
NOT
    c := @s[1];

yeah sure

Procedure WhatEver(S : String);
Var Ch : Char;
Begin
 Ch := S[1];
End;

now ch will contain the first char of string <S>

thats it,
