Supporting the evening and night-time economy: FAQs

GO! Southampton work closely with partners and local businesses to help prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the evening and night-time economy. This work is facilitated through our award-winning Southampton Business Crime Partnership (SBCP), which launched in 2020. As well as our BID member businesses, we primarily work with: 

  • Southampton City Council  
  • Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary 
  • SWL Security (who provide our security teams) 
  • Private security firms (such as Security Nation and Synergy)  
  • St. Johns Ambulance 
  • Street Pastors  
  • Welfare Wardens  

We understand that, like everywhere else, the city centre is still facing issues with rough sleeping, crime and anti-social behaviour which effect the people that live and work in the city as well as visitors. All partners are working together to help avoid and prevent these issues.  

This FAQs page highlights the projects and services we offer as well as the work being done from partners across the city. If you have any further questions, please contact us at
