Mounia Aqim

Community Outreach and Operations Worker

As our Community Outreach and Operations Worker, Mounia supports our community with outreach opportunities such as trips; supports our operations, the running of our centre, donation organisation, and admin; and is beginning to do local community education work on issues affecting refugees, asylum-seeking people and migrants. She is also fluent in four languages – English, Arabic, Spanish and French – and translates for our advice team and others at the centre.

Mounia has been part of West London Welcome since we first opened in 2018, after moving from Morocco to West London. Her lived experience of the issues facing people in our community is of enormous value to her and our work with people at the centre.
