Norton House Stanford Hall

SSAFA’s Norton House Stanford Hall opened in autumn 2018 and offers free, safe and supportive accommodation to families whose loved one is receiving treatment for injuries at the nearby Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. It will also provide a haven for those being treated, to allow them a break from a hospital environment.

  • Families will be supported throughout the rehabilitation of their loved one
  • Shared experiences ensure families do not feel isolated
  • Those being treated will have peace of mind knowing their family is in a safe and supportive environment
  • Families will be spared the additional stress and worry of finding and paying for accommodation
  • Service personnel receiving treatment have a chance to stay and enjoy the comforts of home

The name of this new family accommodation reflects the Norton House legacy set up by SSAFA in 2008 in response to a campaign led by Sue Norton after her husband, Major Peter Norton, GC, was injured while serving in Iraq. Realising the logistical strain that supporting an injured relative through the rehabilitation process can bring, Norton House, Headley Court in Surrey was created as the first comfortable home-away-from-home focusing on emotional welfare.
