Thusong Service Centres are one-stop-centres providing a cluster of government services in an integrated manner. Through these centres, government is able to ensure that people have access to government services and information within their communities, particularly in remote and sparsely populated areas. Thusong Service Centres have been in existence for fifteen (15) years in provinces.
