    Housing benefit and apprenticeships 9th Nov 18 at 12:16 PM

    My 19 year old son has recently been offered an apprenticeship 300 miles away from home. Obviously this isn't very well paid and he would need accommodation

    My question is, would he be entitled to benefits such as housing support while he is away?

    Apologies if I haven't included enough information. I have been trying to look into this myself and there seems to be a lot of conflicting information

    Glad you found it helpful. I am a strong believer that it is helpful for people to understand how a benefits award is calculated because it can improve awareness of how changes of circumstance can affect the amount payable.
