Following the visit, Julie said:
"Gentoo, like all housing associations, is facing difficult times ahead. However, I am very impressed and encouraged by what I have seen today. As I have said many times, since becoming the main social landlord in our city, Gentoo has done fantastic work in Sunderland and I am confident that this will continue."
