The United Progressive Party (UPP) is a political party in Barbados.

The United Progressive Party is part of the Barbados movement manifesting a need for greater participation by people in their democracy. The UPP's first Chairperson is  former Barbados Labour Party (BLP) senator Lynette Eastmond, a former Cabinet Minister in the Owen Arthur Administration.
