About Us

Freedom Of Adverse Media is a company created by the people for the people.

There are many social platforms that control the way we see our model of the world, often they limit much of the real views and news that we need to gather a full 360 degree view of current affairs and other news that have an impact on our lives. They can also be the breeding grounds for other illicit agendas.

This can be overwhelming, especially with the amount of personal data required and the massive push for advertising generated by manipulating our online activity.

FOAM gives the power of social media back to the people. We do not promote Fake news and we monitor and moderate all of our content, to give you the information that matters most to you.

We have a team of moderators committed to keeping all content free of adverse media. The team strive to monitor all content and are committed to removing all fake, racist and abusive material.

There is also an immediate concern about the way young people are easily exploited on many of the larger platforms, this forms part of our greater mission to provide a space that has an emphasis on wellbeing and growth. Because of this, we are committed to promoting this.

Our business is connecting people, socially and commercially in one place.

We also have an innovative points system that rewards you every time you use the platform. We award you with points, that you can easily convert into money, all points converted can be donated to a charity or youth organisation of your choice.

We understand that it may be difficult to change the way you interact with your current providers, but with the increasing use of targeted advertising, restrictions and online abuse, there has never been a better time to experience connecting in a more sustainable way.

There really is no place like FOAM

About our services and our history

FOAM20 was set up with a clear social purpose.

Paul and Teri McKenzie founded Soapbox Real Talk in 2015 and last year in collaboration with Shirley Jackson rebranded it to FOAM20, 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.

Why FOAM?

FOAM is a platform that is run by the people for the people…

We like to focus on news and issues that affect real people in our communities and have an overall impact on their environments.


Our content is committed to raising awareness above all.
One of our core beliefs when considering the development of FOAM20. was to create a platform that people can actually relate to, without being manipulated and exploited.
The kind of platform that will actually benefit people personally, on many different levels.

We are a socially responsible team that monitor and promote only content that is in line with our our company ethos.

We truly believe that there is value to all media. We also subscribe to the belief that we must take control of the intellectual property element, of the content we so freely give to other platforms. By doing this we remain in control of the way our content is used. If we control our content in such a way, we can benefit by monetising and product placement. This means that all content has the opportunity to realise an income.

We offer you an inspirational, alternative place for you to post your work outside of the main platforms that control a huge percentage of all media.

FOAM20 platform also provides a commercial service, which will enable local and/or small businesses to access quality video service at an affordable price, to help promote their brands and organisations.
Many local companies do not have the big budgets required for marketing and branding. This can often have an impact on any small business. We offer rates that are affordable and generally effective in reaching the specific audience.

We truly believe that having a strong recognisable brand can make the difference between having a business that succeeds and having one that’s failing.

One of our main objectives is to build a sustainable platform that will enable people to grow, and at the same time provide employment for talented individuals to gain valuable skills in media and communication.

One of our best ventures to date has been the Community Skills Exchange. This initiative was designed to introduce the concept of trading skills instead of money within specific fields. The incentive enabled Individuals to offer new skills and training within the community, instead of paying for a service, there is a mutual exchange of skills.
The outcome was that we were able to help many people who are challenged by budgets to overcome small challenges in growing their business or skill sets.

In fact, the success of the Community Skills Exchange initiative gave many people, who have worked alongside FOAM20, the opportunity to obtain employment in their chosen fields.

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.

Each time you post, share, comment, or upload on FOAM you are helping to fund future youth projects or supporting a nominated charity of choice.

Check your profile for your balance and watch it creep up. This information will provide the you with a current balance and a value that they you donate to a cause of your choice.

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.

example:

Example:

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.

At this point the member is given a list of current charities or current youth-based projects to select from

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.

Our Business Directory is FREE to list your business, service etc.  There is also a feature to list job, volunteer and work experience opportunities.

All users of the directory will have a member account, and anyone using their service are able to leave a review , giving even more peace of mind and of course what great advertisement.

Established in 2016 as Conscious Sounds and then went on the become UWC Radio

More recently with the launch of FOAM20 we felt it made sense to rename the station FOAM.

So if you are looking for a new home to play your music give us a call

our DOME is a pop up event infrastructure that be hired for all events,

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.
