“Community engagement refers to the process by which organizations and individuals build ongoing, permanent relationships: and apply a collaborative vision to benefit the community. It encompasses participation from the beginning by identifying issues and mobilizing relevant resources and strategies in improving the community towards change. The element of engagement, partnership, coalitions, and sustainability are essential in ensuring the community’s social functioning and well-being. Community engagement requires the voluntary participation of all parties which results in mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources.”
