The Centre at Beaudesert is set to host the third and final Get Savvy Expo from 10am to 1pm tomorrow.

Scenic Rim residents can Get Savvy about their health, wellbeing and government and community services at the council-organised event.

More than 40 stallholders will be offering free giveaways and information on a range of issues including disability services, support for seniors, legal rights, financial planning and healthy living.

Mayor Greg Christensen said the expos would address a wide range of health and social issues faced by many members of the Scenic Rim community at some stage in their lives.

"From our savvy seniors to parents of pre-schoolers, the stallholders will have information on the National Disability Insurance Scheme, financial counselling, diet and nutrition, mental health and how to stay fit and well," he said.

"There is plenty of scope to connect with a new interest or new group or just find information on issues that may affect someone in your home.

"We want our residents to be as equipped as they can be for any challenges that arise and so I urge everyone to come along to any one of our three Get Savvy expos in March."

Stallholders will include health professionals, dietitians, aged care services, mental health, elder abuse, emergency services, disability services, breast screening, hearing tests, drug support services, healthy bladder and bowel and local community organisations.
