How can I move out for the first time?

I'm 24 and I've always lived at home with my family. I now live with just my mum but my older brother is moving home soon. I have autism & gastroparesis, I have a feeding tube & sometimes have to use mobility aids due to my joints. I claim PIP & ESA, but still struggle with money, I have no savings. I pay for some bills & shopping, along with a lot of medical supplies, it all adds up.

I've wanted to move out for some time. I love my family but they have zero respect for personal space & I feel so relieved whenever they're out of the house & I can have some peace & quiet. My mum has always been a bit protective & there are a lot of basic skills I have never learnt. Due to my disabilities I'm unable to work & am signed off sick by my GP on a long term basis. 

I want to move out but I hardly have any money, I have maybe £300 right now which obviously won't go far at all. What options might I have?
