Hi Lisa, He needs to make an application to the local Council as homeless; it sounds like he has been discouraged from doing so, rather than being given the opportunity to make a formal application which they must make a formal decision on - he has the right to do so. He needs to make them fully aware of his learning difficulties - although he is a young single male this should still help them consider that he may be a vulnerable person. If they refuse to help ask them to put their decision in writing with reasons - then he has the right to appeal against the decision - try your local CAB, if they can't provide specialist help they should advise you on who can provide free legal help in your area to appeal. Also check the small ads for rooms in houseshares or homeowners who need a lodger - some may only need a couple of weeks' rent as a deposit, particularly if rent is charged weekly, maybe a family member or a loan from work could help with this although I appreciate this may not be possible. He may well be entitled to Housing Benefit although he is working as it depends on income and his is low, he can get a 'pre-tenancy determination' from the Housing Benefit department at the Council which should give an idea of how much they could help with rent on a tenancy he is thinking of taking on. Hope this helps, it sounds very stressful for you being told that you cannot help your brother by letting him stay and you may want to seek advice on your rights regarding this as well.
