Allied Health

Allied Health volunteer positions are available at Anandaniketan- Society for Mental Health Care in West Bengal. Placements are also available in the mobile outreach programs for musculoskeletal physiotherapists.

Anandaniketan is a not for profit organisation that provides residential care to 350 children, adolescents and adults. The residents mostly have physical, mental and/or intellectual disabilities, and many are orphans.

Equal Health's team of health professionals work alongside the management, staff and residents of Anandaniketan to:

  • Bring freedom of movement and the benefits of play for people and children with disabilities through occupational therapy and physiotherapy.

  • Improve the health of people with a mental illness through psychology.

  • Support parents, carers and teachers of children with disabilities.

Musculoskeletal physiotherapists also have the opportunity to work as part of the medical team both within Anandaniketan and on mobile outreach programs.

Equal Health allied health professionals make a significant contribution to enhancing independent functioning, self worth, dignity, respect, and improvement of quality of life for the Anandaniketan residents.
