Additionally, the program is supported from reports of the Cypriot Ministry of Finance, proposing the collapse of the above organizations in the same space.
The ideas regarding the uses that the multi-functional center will offer, were set after a meeting held with senior representatives of the organizations. The building program then, drawn up jointly. Moreover, the following research, after recognizing the various options for creating this kind of center within the city, ultimately suggests the space where the program could successfully host.

Except for those already mentioned, it will contain additional spaces for use by young people for programs relating to the above mentioned organizations. For example, youth training programs, skills enhancement programs, career guidance offices and psychological helpdesks for young people.
