I am asking on behalf of my son Chris who has a left sided hemiplegia and some learning difficulties. He is in reciept of DLA and earns £541 a month working part time. He has been told he is not entitled to housing benefit. He lives in Brighton - can this be right? He needs to find somewhere else to live by the end of August and I cant find anything that he could afford to rent on his income.
