Brother applying under Family of Settled Person

Hi
I am a British citizen having naturalised recently. I have just discovered that adult relatives (my brother) can apply under Family of Settled Person to live and work in the UK. Is this true? If not, is there any way for him to come and live in the UK?

Penalty Fare

Thank you to all who have replied so far. I seek your advice on a train penalty fare (£20). Is this counted against good character? Do I have to declare this? I don't remember if it is more than 12 months.
