My daughter has been accepted on a part time degree course. What benefits might she be entitled to?

Hi, My daughter is 20 and about to move into a supported living flat. She has also been accepted on a part time degree course starting in September. She needs to find £210 rent per week for the flat. Her student loan won't even cover half of this. Please can anyone help with what else she may be entitled to? She is in receipt of the enhanced rate of PIP for both care and mobility and is a wheelchair user. I am also on a low income as a mature student.
