The complex also focuses on care and welfare which gives it an extra social dimension for the area and firmly embeds it in the neighbourhood. The subdistrict offices (stadswinkel) for Rotterdam-Noord, for example, are located here, as are a range of social and care institutions (such as the Youth and Family Centre (Centrum Jeugd Gezin) and the NIDOS Foundation. These users exert considerable pulling power and complement their neighbourhood and the complex.
