The GCIS is a leading player in the Thusong Service Centres initiative. Thusong Service Centres (Thusongs) are one-stop centres where local, provincial and national government, as well as other service-providers offer much needed services and information about government programmes to local communities. Communities living near the Thusongs and surrounding areas identify services based on their needs.
The goal is to provide every South African citizen with easy access to information and services near their place of residence.
