Can someone point me to a source describing what a London resident would do to secure housing or a housing subsidy if they were suddenly and catastrophically disabled? This is the information I have found that seems to apply: http://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-p
The character in question is an army veteran and unarguably (even to a hostile bureaucracy!) unable to do the work he has been trained for, or, indeed, any skilled work. He doesn't specifically need wheelchair access.
This is a magical AU, so I can fudge details, but I'd like at least to generally follow the track of what would happen in our reality; as long as the link above provides accurate information, it's probably as much detail as I need.
(Mods, I don't see a tag for public benefits or the like -- my apologies if I missed it.)
