Stanmore Children's Home was in Cambridge Street Stanmore and used the building that had been The Lodge Young Women's Hostel. Throughout its time as a children's home, Stanmore provided accommodation for female students. The last of the children left the home in late 1987, and were placed in family group homes at Narwee and Dulwich Hill. The Stanmore site was then converted into a continuing education facility for Salvation Army Officers.
