FOAM20 was set up with a clear social purpose.
Paul and Teri McKenzie founded Soapbox Real Talk in 2015 and in 2018 formed a business partnership with Shirley Jackson, who founded Youth Unity, from there this is where FOAM20 was formed, with a simple goal – to build a high-quality video production company with a clear social purpose.
Soapbox produced over 400 community focused videos. The aim of the company was to transform lives through film, by creating high-impact documentaries and promotional videos to empower people and bring awareness through story telling and by running filmmaking workshops.
Now, operating as FOAM20 We continue to bring awareness to the community by empowering adults and young people to be creative, through fun and accessible filmmaking incentives.
FOAM20 Group serves to provide an opportunity for individuals to express their brilliance, speak their truth and encourage the lives of others.
FOAM20 is a friendly motivational organisation and brand that aims to build a movement of positive creativity, using inspirational thought-provoking media and news.
Our platform consists of alternative but informative news and views about local and international topics. We have a strong belief that the little man has a voice that can influence change in many different areas of one’s life.
Our mission is to create a new generation of creatives and filmmakers through our innovative Workshops.
We also specialise in delivering film, photography and visual media projects for schools, youth and community organisations.
During the last year we have focused on producing a series of short screenplays.
#SiCK was one of the shorts which has recently been screened at the National Gallery in London.
Our films have helped many charities succeed in their fundraising goals, proving that great content and interaction really does make a difference to the people they serve.
3DOM has an innovative points system as an integral part of the platform. You will receive points with every interaction you make on 3DOM, see the help file for a detailed breakdown.

This also works well if you wish to contribute to other projects such as youth film workshops or awareness training etc.
There is also an area to create professional profiles, to showcase the projects, skills and much more, this can be used in a fun way also, but a massively great tool to showcase the amazing work many organisations are working and also a great way to connect with members who are on the same path.
One FOAM user point has an actual value of £0.01.
For each 1000 points earned a payment of £10.00 is redeemable and made payable.
Points can be carried forward to the value of 1000 points.

There are over 100 awareness videos and short films on FF20 that can be used as valuable learning tools. We currently host a number of channels on the site that can be used as a great resource to educate.
FF20 is passionate about changing the lives of young people whilst allowing teachers, practitioners and mentors to use the content to train and educate others. We also involve young people in the building and running of the platform.
This provides them with ownership and experience that they can use to gain employment or further training etc.
We strongly believe that by offering young people the opportunity to be involved in the production of responsible content, enables them to learn and develop new skills at the same time.
We deliver film workshops in schools, colleges and pupil referral units. Teaching young people of all ages the importance of using social media responsibly.
We also run more specific intervention workshops aimed at young people at risk. These workshops are powerful and help to engage hard to reach cohorts.

Why You Should Have a Wedding or event in a Dome Tent
A wedding can be expensive, especially when you factor in the cost of renting a venue for your special day. Countless couples are now opting for the marquee hire option instead of renting a room in a large building that feels impersonal. A wedding tent can make your event seem more welcoming, and you and your guests may feel more comfortable overall.
A Dome Tent Is Perfect for an Outdoor Wedding
If you want to have an outdoor wedding but are unsure of how the weather will be, then using a dome tent is an ideal strategy. Even if the day is wet or windy, your party will be protected from the elements. You can still enjoy the fresh air, and your wedding will have a more natural feel.
Wedding Tent Rentals Are More Cost-Efficient
Once you call a few venues for prices, you will quickly understand why using a wedding tent has become such a popular thing to do. A wedding tent rental cost is generally much more affordable than any other type of enclosed space for such an event would be.
Your wedding should be the most special day of your life thus far as a couple. By opting for a marquee hire instead of an expensive venue, you can spend more money on other details (such as the flowers and catering). More couples than ever seem to prefer a wedding tent for this important celebration.
Youth Unity develops projects, that bring different groups from across the capital together to build cohesive and consistent grass roots approach to tackling issues that affect young people and the community that they live working with ages 8 to 25, including BAME, LGBT and people with disabilities. Encouraging young people to live a healthy and enriched lifestyle by offering training and work experience that can enable them to earn a living and contribute positively back into their families and communities.
Addressing the rise of young people drawn to county lines with an underlying factor as many young people are unable to seek employment leaving them prime targets for county lines, as more young people are online, this project will provide help and support to address this and other important topics:
Before Covid-19 and the lockdown, forecasts suggested that the number of young people outside of education, training and employment is likely to increase due to an overall rise in the population. These rises have an overwhelming impact on the young people that form part of the school-leaving population. There is an increase in the numbers of young people that live in care or are special needs. The real concern is that this combination of growth combined with the lack of opportunities will create a void that is likely to impact the economy post COVID-19. Although we will not know the impact until this time.
Our aim is to empower young people to bring about change in perceptions that all young people are in gangs and look for trouble.
Our youth are our future and we need to protect them from harm and engage them into meaningful pastimes that offer hope, fulfilment and encouragement.
