Rough Sleepers & Anti Social Behaviour Useful Contact Information

If you find someone rough sleeping please email BPRST, it is helpful to have:

  • their name 
  • description 
  • location for where they are sleeping
so that the teams can engage with them. 

The email address is Bournemouth-streelink@mungos.org or call 01202 315962 to leave details on an answerphone.

Clearance of items from the street Tel: 01202 451199 or email enquiries@bournemouth.gov.uk

If you are experiencing street based anti-social behaviour, such as street drinking, begging or vandalising you can contact:

Mark Hawkins the Anti-Social Behaviour Coordinator on mark.hawkins@mungos.org

All cases of ASB should be reported to epic.reporting@bournemouth.gov.uk make sure you ask for an incident number and to be updated when the matter has been dealt with.


·         Keep a record of what has happened including time, date and location of the occurrence with as much detail as possible including anything that was said.

·         When you make the report ensure you let me know if you are happy to make a statement – without evidence enforcement teams will not effectively be able to deal with people who are begging.
