Abstract: Abstract The nature of family has changed over time creating new trends, that run through all the European countries. Within this framework the four main trends associated with the family are late marriage, postponement of childbirth, involvement of men in care activities and economic independence of women, which can be formulated in a family policy pattern. Τhe Greek society and economy in the current context of fiscal consolidation addresses the consequences of a demographic switch, the most determinant of which is the decline in birth rates, the ageing population and a social protection system under risk. The aim of this study is to portray the current demographic switch in Greece, the risk faced by the family as the structural element of demographic policy and to suggest community-based interventions in order to empower family and strengthen demographic policy. Although, the search was not exhaustive, it is hoped that it contributes as a comprehensive resource in the demographic evolution research. The literature review was conducted in PubMed, Cochrane library and Scopus in April–May 2018. Also, data were obtained and elaborated from the Eurostat and OECD databases, and Hellenic Statistical Authority as well. The study highlighted the urgent need of maternity protection, and work-life balance as essentials to increase birth rates, to sustain the social protection system, to acknowledge the key role of local community, to promote gender equality at work, promote decent work for both genders, primarily for the groups of people in need.
