Hi i'm not sure what way this would work , as they can share a room until 18 years old . Could you ask your OT to write out a later and give it to a housing officer . Go see the Citizens Advice they might be able to help you out. Good luck

You could contact your local council and ask for a medical needs application. It can take a while and they will assess your current housing situation, also if you supply supporting evidence off a doctor or social worker etc that would help. Some councils are different to others, some offer a points system or a grade/bidding system, are you council/HA currently or do you know how your council operates?? Xx

It doesn't matter no I was just thinking of support. You can apply for a move to an extra bedroomed property on the grounds he's autistic and is struggling to share but you'd need support to do this. It would stoll be a medical needs application. Might help if you could get an OT but I know they're hard to get Undecided have you tried looking for maybe an exchange!?x
