Sounds like your friend may be entitled to some help from the British Charitable Fund:

Is that Rsa if so he should be able to claim some money to pay rent on top.  Ask your assistante sociale at the conseil générale

As said, ask the assistante sociale. Have to say 600€ doesn't sound bad as a benefit if that all comes from the state, or is that also from private insurance policies? There is a scheme where you can apply for funds from the state which will then be taken back out of your estate, others on here will know more details.

So sorry to read this,to have such a hopeless outlook is bad enough without having to worry about where the money is coming from to live out an extremely limited life span.

In the UK those in a similar position are entitled to increased benefits and capital grants, not sure if there is a similar system here but you might want to contact a few of the Cancer charities that advertise in the Connexion.

Best wishes in your endeavours.

Maybe best to talk to the assistant sociale, they would be able to sort out what ever he needs
