The Progression Pathways project is part of Crisis Skylight Oxford and  employs progression coordinators whose role centres on enhancing the social integration of homeless people. There is evidence that the Progression Pathways project and Skylight Oxford are enhancing the life chances of a vulnerable group of homeless people through improving their access to training and personal development. There is also evidence that the project is enhancing the social integration of homeless people and improving their positive engagement with communities.

Key successes for the Progression Pathways project included gains in employability, improvements in housing situations and enhancement to social networks and community engagement. Progress was also evident in enhancing self-esteem and confidence and the mental and physical health of a group of homeless and vulnerably housed people who were often experiencing stigmatisation, sustained worklessness and who could have high support needs.
