UK Travel & COVID Advice –


As we all look to start some well-earned Christmas leave there will be a number of our community who will not be able to do the same due to COVID restrictions and will see some single/unaccompanied personnel and families unable to go home or receive visits over Christmas due to them having to isolate within their flat/houses.  Unfortunately my team isn’t big enough to continue Real Life Support during the close down of SHAPE and EJSU so I am coming to you the Community, to request assistance with supporting those who might need it in the coming weeks during what will likely be a very lonely and miserable period. 

If you are remaining in Belgium and are willing/able to offer some time to support individuals or families in isolation, you can register at COVID – Christmas Volunteers – European Joint Support Unit (  The information provided will go to the Duty personnel over stand-down, using your registration information they will be able to link someone in need of support with a volunteer.  The contact details will be given to the person in need of support and they will be able to contact you if they are in need of assistance.  Assistance could be in the form of shopping or maybe a dog walk, the type of support will depend on what you are willing to offer. 

If you are in need of assistance due to being placed in quarantine/isolation please reach into the SHAPE Duty Officer on 0032 (0) 0476910209 and complete the COVID Reporting form here – COVID19 REPORTING – European Joint Support Unit (
