The Hub Of People And Information Surrounding Social Care.


LOCer's ROOM (ロッカーズ・ルーム)

LOCer’s ROOM (ロッカーズ・ルーム) is Lights On Children’s multi-purpose space located in Shibuya, Tokyo.
Lights On Children is acting to lower the barriers between social care and the outside world. Our ultimate goal is to become a hub of people and information surrounding social care. LOCer’s ROOM is the base for such activities.

LOCer's ROOM (ロッカーズ・ルーム) has ceased operations as of 2020.



It refers to the people involved in the Lights On Chidren community.

Lectures And Events For Children

Various lectures and events for children are held at LOCer’s ROOM, such as PC lecture classes (e2 Project), job-related lectures (Job Rehearsal) and cooking classes (Orange Club).

Connecting Children And Adults

Many children in children’s homes don’t have any home to go after they leave children’s home at the age of 18 (or 20). For these children, the lack of social capital is potentially a serious problem. Therefore, even a short period of time spent with an adult listening to their stories is of significance. Someone needs to get involved with these children before their small missteps become a serious burdens.
In FY 2017, we launched “LOCer’s CAFE” to support children’s home’s after care.

Connecting Adults

Connecting social care and businesses and bringing real impact to the children is an important part of Lights On Children’s mission. We will organize a talk event for people engaged in social care or for people in businesses and other organizations (“Supporters BAR” (支援者BAR)).
