South Burnett Disability and Mental Health Expo Shines A Light On Services


A special Expo which aimed to “fill in the gaps” in knowledge about what disability supports are available in the South Burnett was held at Kingaroy Showgrounds on Sunday morning.

The Disability and Mental Health Expo was organised by two local residents with a passion for helping people: Laurel Cohen and Tony Scrimshaw.

Tony was formerly with APM NDIS Kingaroy but has now set up his own business, Living Actively Disability Support Services, while Laurel is a parent of a child with a disability.

Laurel said she could see there was an information gap that needed to be filled just from her own experience.

“I didn’t know what services were available in the area, and the places I asked didn’t know everybody because there are a lot of independent services now,” she said.

Tony said the invitation to have a stall at the Expo was also extended to services from outside the region who could work with people in the South Burnett.

There were 25 stallholders booked in – ranging from the Rockin Our Abilities group from Murgon (who were providing live music) to the Sunshine Coast Spinners wheelchair basketball group and Wunderdogs who offer “animal assisted activities”.

Living Actively Disability Support Services

Living Actively Disability Support Services has come to the South Burnett to give participants Choice and Control.

Disability is the inability to see ability.

Living Actively does not see the disability but what the participant sees in themselves and by supporting them with their NDIS plan. Together we can go on their journey to assist participants with Independent Living and building upon their Social and community Participation. No one should be blocked by not being able to access their community and we believe by assisting participants we can build people lives and make them feel valued in their communities.

Living Actively was created with the passion and understanding from a family member who had Cerebral Palsy. There was no support back then only given by the love and care from family and friends. The NDIS has changed so many lives and will continue to do so with participants being able to have Choice and Controls to build their independence.  As a disability support organisation we care and have a passion for the participant wanting to reach their goals, their dreams and if able to have  meaningful employment.
