Stubbs resigns from Barrow Cadbury Trust

Trust's first female chief executive says she wants to explore new opportunities

Sukhvinder Stubbs, chief executive of the Barrow Cadbury Trust for the past eight years, has resigned with immediate effect.

Stubbs stood down last week and, in a statement, the trust said she had left to "explore new opportunities while spending more time with her young daughter before she begins school".

Susie Parsons, former chief executive of the Commission for Racial Equality, Aids charity London Lighthouse and the Campaign for Learning, has taken over as part-time interim chief executive.

The trust said it would be recruiting a permanent replacement for Stubbs shortly.

Stubbs became the trust's first female chief executive in 2001. She is credited with broadening its approach from simple grant-making to supporting policy through partnerships with grass-roots organisations, think tanks and academics.

In 2005 she took leave from the trust to adopt a daughter. According to the trust, "she will spend the next few months undertaking voluntary work for a range of local groups and exploring the most effective models of engaging those facing multiple disadvantages".
