Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to you, your community or your environment.
It can cause significant fear & distress to local communities & is treated seriously by all local agencies in St.Helens.

Anti-social behaviour can fit into two categories; environmental or criminal, & both can be reported & dealt with in different ways.

  • General graffiti, such as 'tagging'
  • Uncontrolled pets
  • Dog Fouling
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Unkempt gardens, rubbish dumping
  • Shouting & name-calling
  • Littering
  • Rowdy & noisy neighbours

ArrowYou can contact the Council's Contact Centre on: 01744 676789 if you want to report any of the above, or if you want support or advice with an issue you feel you can handle yourself. The Contact Centre will log your call & refer you to the relevant team in the council to help you.
