Dear Difficult case,

Yes, you can challenge a negative assessment. You do not say what context the assessment was made. Some assessments will have a specific process that needs to be used. You can ask the social worker how you can challenge the decision.
Otherwise, the best way to challenge would be via the children services complaints process. Here are our pages about complaints .

I hope this advice helps but if you need further advice, please post again.
Best wishes,
Suzie
