Chubb left school aged sixteen and worked as a manager at a bakery chain. In her forties, she took a career change to begin working as a carer. In 1999, after working as a care worker for three years in Isard House care home run by BUPA in Bromley, she was one of seven who were forced to quit after reporting suspected abuse of elderly residents.
Chubb has been critical of the ability of the Care Quality Commission to effectively inspect care homes. As a member of the public, she has visited over 300 care homes in the UK undercover.
In 2001 she founded Compassion in Care. It was set up as a charity with herself as director in 2003.
In 2008 she released the book Beyond the Facade which described her experiences.
From 2012 to 2013 she was charity director at Whistleblowers UK.
In 2014 she co-founded The Whistler, a fellowship alliance between Compassion in Care and the Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ).
In February 2015, she gave an initial response to the Freedom to Speak Up Review report into NHS whistleblowing, produced by Sir Robert Francis, describing it as "a complete betrayal of whistleblowers”.
