 " Community engagement refers to the process by which organisations and individuals build on-going, permanent relationships; and apply a collaborative vision to benefit the community. It encompasses participation from the beginning by identifying issues and mobilising relevant resources and strategies in improving the community towards change. The elements of engagement, partnership, coalitions and sustainability are essential in ensuring communities social functioning and well-being. Community engagement requires voluntary participation of all parties which results in mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources"
