    You could get your brother to help fill in the form, as for talking about your claim you could do that each time you need to call on the phone if possible, although there shouldn't be many times if any that you need to speak to them.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Look for an actual welfare rights adviser to help with form completion. Avoid anyone who wishes to charge. Use this site to identify possible options. https://advicelocal.uk/

    There are few times anyone will need to speak on your behalf to PIP. He can do so but only with your consent which will effectively mean you’ll need to be in the room anyway and speak briefly to them once or twice during a call to confirm your ID and your consent.

    hello, you may have to have your brother made an appointee in regards talking on your behalf at or about your review or assessments.

    If the issue is literacy and communication then there cannot be an appointee. Appointees are for when a person lacks the mental capacity to handle their own benefit affairs.
