How does my tenant get housing benefit??

I want to issue a section 8 - as tenant can't pay rent as stat sick pay is insufficent, tenant was mugged and broke his finger. Prior to this he had to take unpaid leave from work as his daughter was in hospital with a serious illness - so no savings!?

Am I obliged to help him in any way? ie should he be due housing benefit he's still employed.

I feel quite mean, just serving a section 8, but I have been spun some stories in my time and simply can't aford for him to stay for free.
