Seeking advise for a 19yrs full time university student who most recently lost his mother to cancer. 
1). Can he claim housing benefits as his uni is in Newcastle whilst his home is in London.
2). Can he apply for help with funeral payments?

Any advise with a way forward will be greatly appreciated.
