New but long time lurker. Looking for Swiss expats in UK!

Hi all, been a lurker for years, I'm British with a Swiss husband so this forum has been great for cultural and language insights, also for deciding whether to stay here or move to Switzerland!

We currently live in the UK and have a 1 year old son. My husband is really struggling to bring him up bilingually as he's the only person our son has in the UK who speaks Swiss German to him. Husband's family lived here for 10 years but moved back last year.

I was hoping to find a Swiss family near me that I could do some sort of language exchange with, or just generally socialise with, for my son's sake. Or maybe I should get a Swiss au pair or a Swiss language student in our spare room?

I know this forum is for English expats in CH rather than Swiss expats in the UK but hoping someone will have some suggestions for me!

Welcome to the forum.

We're here for people in Switzerland and Swiss expats and ex-residents worldwide (and the occasional Canadian that can't keep away), so don't worry

Try swisscommunity.org for a network of Swiss abroad. I got to know a few Swiss through that site, when I was living in Canada. There are also Swiss clubs in many different areas of the UK, you can find them on the same site.
