From little things big things grow

Our Story


Founder & Publisher: Paul Koury          

Paul Koury is the founder and publisher of the Australian Carer Guide

Paul spent eight years caring for his mother with his sister Josie. During that time, he found it very frustrating and stressful. He was amazed at how little information there was for unpaid carers about what support was available and what free services they could receive. However, after talking with other carers, Paul discovered that almost all felt the same way.

Having spent 30 years in the publishing industry, Paul decided to start his own magazine to help other unpaid carers navigate their way through this difficult and complicated time. Being seen, supported and well-informed is making a real positive difference in their daily lives.

Paul also suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and although mild, he has to manage his energy wisely. However, he says that he finds extra energy knowing there are 1.3 million unpaid carers of their elderly loved ones which his publication can help.

We are also proud to have like-minded and passionate Australian icons as regular contributors in the Australian Carers Guide. These include Maggie Beer, Ita Buttrose, Jean Kittson, Maree McCabe OA and the Hon Anika Wells just to name a few.

The Australian Carers Guide is a 132pp quarterly publication packed full of helpful, practical and entertaining content all in one easy-to-read magazine.
