Was there a need for an app like this? Andreas F. seems like the person to ask. He's an engineer who was born in Ticino and now works in London – where he experienced first Brexit and then the onset of COVID-19. During this period of uncertainty, the Swiss representations in the UK were a key point of reference for him. "They were certainly there for us in these circumstances. For example, their websites weren't bad – but we lacked information that was relevant to our specific situations. And although the Swiss around him got organised on social networks and shared their experiences, "there was no direct official communication channel that was always up to date", says Andreas.
That's exactly what SwissInTouch is for.
