For 27 years Stewart Dorward served in the Royal Air Force, specialising in radar and computing matters. On two tours of duty he commanded RAF units with several hundred personnel. After his retirement Stewart attended the University of East Anglia, graduating in 2003 with an MA in Politics and History. From 1997 onwards and until early 2014 Stewart worked with the Citizens Advice Bureau in Stowmarket and Ipswich, as a volunteer adviser and in a paid position in the Ipswich Bureau as Training Manager. Stewart feels that as a Trustee he can now combine these diverse backgrounds to help Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk provide advice services to the people of Mid Suffolk.
