This is what I know for geography (if you're talking about sociology or something it may not apply):

The UK is an ageing population because the GDP is increasing as people are becoming more educated, more industrialised and getting better jobs and therefore don't feel a need to have so many children like people in countries like Ghana do (people in LEDC's have more children in hopes that one of them will survive to adulthood and go to university and bring income to the family, because the life expectancy is so low). Therefore, because the UK life expectancy is on the rise, and there is a low TFR (total fertility rate) so there's less children being born, it means that the UK is an ageing population. Impacts of this could include less chances (because there's less people) of young people getting into to university, which could jeopardise the future of the country in terms of democratics, health services etc. It does however mean the life expectancy will KEEP increasing, because there's more resources such as health care, benefits etc to keep people going and give them a better standard of life and quality of life.

- Higher cost to the government in terms of pension costs
- Increase in jobs catering to the elderly population, such as nurses in care homes
- Heavier burden on NHS services as older people tend to use health services much more frequently
- Grey pound -> spending power of the ageing population

There are much more... I remember doing this in GCSE and AS geography.

If it's Geography:

Inequality in ages result in less working people meaning less people pay taxes. It results in economic problems to the country so the government has to spend more money on paying off pensions and social care (such as hospitals).

Only a big impact if they are on one of those darned mobility scooters. Otherwise, they mostly just bounce off you and break hips and stuff.
