About Us

YouGo.World’s founders are Jon Masters and Chandresh Pala. Both of us have elderly relatives who although mentally active and keen to explore, are unable to due to physical and health limitations. There are so many amazing places and experiences around the world and yet they are inaccessible to many people due to various limitations. As social entrepreneurs and creative technologists, we created YouGo.World to help end isolation and democratise access to the world of experiences. We believe that technology should be used to improve people’s lives and make the world a better place.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable anyone, irrespective of their financial, physical or geographic limitations to experience the amazing wonders of the world and in doing so promote knowledge, understanding and connection between people. We want to enable people to enjoy personal experiences and build meaningful connections leading to better more fulfilled lives. We believe in empowering local people to generate income for themselves and their families by providing guide services.

Ending Isolation

The impacts of isolation and loneliness are shocking. Loneliness, living alone and poor social connections are as bad for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Lonely people are more likely to suffer from dementia, heart disease and depression.

The number of over 50s experiencing loneliness is increasing and millions of older people go at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all.

Our goal is to help to bring an end to isolation and loneliness by empowering people to live better lives. Using the YouGo.World platform people can connect with guides and go on either individual or small group tours. The tours could be simple walks to local places of interest or personal historical significance. For the more adventurous, it could be exploring the palaces of Rajasthan or markets of Marrakesh.

Contact us if you have an elderly relative and want to give them access to the world. If you are a care provider or care home, contact us to discuss how we can help your residents to lead more engaging lives.

Together we can end isolation and empower everyone to have great experiences.

Remote Experts and Training

Expert resources are always in demand. Making best use of their time is a challenge especially when their skills are needed quickly, often at different locations.

The YouGo.World platform can provide a range of solutions including
  • Quick, secure access to expert resources providing remote assistance anywhere in the world
  • Remote collaboration
  • Education and training sessions to remote participants

Harness the Power of the Crowd

Sometimes you just need to check something at a specific location or place. Wouldn’t it be great if there was someone right there who could show you what you need to see. The YouGo.World platform allows you to harness the power of the crowd by connecting you to people at the places you want to see.

Some examples of uses
  • Checking that your products and prices are correctly displayed in stores
  • Gathering market research and intelligence from locations
  • Checking a supplier’s workshop before placing an order with them
  • Going on a personal tour of a prospective overseas university before applying
  • Getting a personal of a property or other high-value purchase at a remote location

Our platform allows you to quickly, easily and at low cost, have access to an abundance of resources around the world, where you need them, when you need them.

Tourism and Culture

The digital revolution has had a profound impact on how people decide, plan and book their trips. With so many amazing places in the world, it’s often difficult to decide where to go and what to see.

Our platform can help in many ways
  • See remote locations which are not easily accessible or financially viable to visit
  • Enabling disabled or people with mobility limitations to travel anywhere
  • Doing a personal tour of a holiday destination and hotel before placing a booking
  • Accessing local people, with local knowledge to enhance your experience

It’s so enriching to connect with people, seeing how they live, understanding their culture and helping to promote understanding.
